Can A Brutha Borrow...
It's getting warm here. I like that. I am beginning to notice the green starting to come back in the grass in my yard. That means that pretty soon...I'll have to cut the grass. I don't like that. LOL. It's not that I don't like cutting the grass but my yard is HUGE. And my house sits on a hill. For me, pushing a lawn mower is time consuming. Last year, I paid for somebody to cut it. This year, with these high gas prices and budget concerns, I'll do it myself. After surveying the yard, I went to my garage to look at the ole lawn mower. It was GONE! Did somebody steal it? No. I forgot that I let my father-in-law borrow it last summer. I didn't use it and I didn't mind if he used it. I just realized that he never brought it back.
I'm real cool with my father-in-law. I've borrowed things from him and vice versa. I'm going to call him and ask him to return the lawn mower. I don't think it'll be a problem...after all...it's mine, right? But I'm not going to his crib to pick it up, either. If you borrow something, then you should return it. He lives about 5 mins away but I'm not gonna get my SUV dirty with a lawn mover in the trunk. haaaaa. This will be easy...I'll ask him and he'll bring it back. Who knows...we may even share it this summer.
Today's topic...borrowing other people's stuff. Have you ever borrowed something from somebody and they had it for sooooo long that you had to "borrow" it back from them? LOL. Has somebody ever borrowed something from you and damaged it while they had it. I remember when my teammate from college borrowed my Dogg Pound cd and never gave it back...even when I went to his house in DC...(aint that right Rezidl...lmao)? Or when my boy Moe "borrowed" my Syracuse sweatpants when we were in college and "made a pair of shorts" out of them. And THEN he had the nerve to try to give em back to me (no thanks). LOL.
Let me know your story.
