Yesterday I was mowing my lawn. My neighbour from Manilla pulled into his driveway just as I was priming the engine. He came over and asked me how the lawn mower worked. I showed him all the features "you put the petrol in there', 'the blades are like a fan', 'it can run over sticks!' He'd only ever used the person powered push versions.
He asked me if he could watch. Then he stood on his lawn and watched me mow my entire front lawn. I smiled at him occasionaly. He crossed the road and stood on the foot path to get a better view.
