If you give a gardener. . .

. . . the garbage to take out she will see a weed in the lawn.

When she sees the weed, she'll get her weed tool from the greenhouse and remove the weed.

When she is removing the weed she'll see the clover that has encroached on the bed around the shed.

When she sees that clover she'll begin to pull it.

When she begins pulling it she'll decide she needs another tool, the sharp one.

When she is using the sharp tool on the clover she'll decide she needs gloves.

When she is getting the gloves out of the greenhouse she'll see the kneeler pad.

When she sees the kneeler pad, she'll grab it.

When grabbing the kneeler pad, she'll see the cultivator.

When she sees the cultivator, she'll decide she needs it, too.

If you give a gardener a weed tool, a sharp tool, a cultivator, a kneeler pad and gloves she'll decide she needs the long handled edger too.

When she has the long handled edger in hand she'll begin edging the entire length of that side of the garden by the shed.

When she is edging that entire bed, she'll hear mosquitos around her.

When the mosquitos she heard begin to attack she'll quickly put away the weed tool, and the sharp tool, and the kneeler pad, and the cultivator, and the long-handled edger, and her gloves.

When she puts away her gloves she'll go back into the house to finish cleaning up the kitchen.

When she is cleaning up the kitchen she'll realize the kitchen waste can is still on the porch.

When she realizes the can is still on the porch, she'll retrieve it.

When she retrieves it, she'll see it needs a new liner.

When she sees the can needs a new liner, she'll put in a new liner.

When she puts in the new liner, she'll look out the kitchen window.

When she looks out the kitchen window, she'll see a weed in the lawn. . .
