I love having my hands in the dirt. It is never a science and always an art. There are no rules. And if it comes down to me versus that weed I'm trying to pull out of the ground that doesn't want to come out? I know I'll win.
There aren't many things that are universally cool, and it's cool not to litter. I'd never do it.
Absolutely not. I have no problem with commitment. In fact, I love having someone in my life.
