Dirty Work

Drake decided to edge the sidewalk that runs through the center of our back yard (to the back porch entrance.)  He's been deciding to do projects the moment he comes home lately, which results in this:

Drake in a sweater vest and tie, ripping up large sections of sod with his bare hands.

When I asked him why he didn't just change out of his work clothes, he replied "Alta, this is not dirty work."  Which made me laugh so hard that I had a contraction.  

Perhaps you wonder what I do while Drake is doing all of these projects around the house?  

I sit there on my balance ball, bouncing around and taking pictures.  

All of the sod got thrown in one of the flower beds, where Drake plans to use it to level out the soil, and encourage water to drain *away* from our basement.  Unfortunately, one of the fairies got smacked. 

What kind of a madman could do this?

Vicious backyard warrior that he is.
