It is said that a true genius can draw a freehand circle. I am not sure how this relates to someone who can’t mow a straight line. Once I tried just going round and round the sundial but after the initial euphoria it became incredibly complicated at the edges and I developed a sick headache. Its not that I don’t try. In fact I had to pass a straight line mowing test at college and although not top of the class I did OK. To be honest its not just mowing. In the past few years the vegetable garden hasn’t been a haven for the parallel line. I do my best, stand back and yet again am dismayed by the lack of geometry. When we get to the nitty gritty I suppose it just isn’t important enough to me and my inner rebel triumphs every time. Basically the only time I succeed in obtaining straight lines is when I’m desperately trying not to, now you should see the bedding!
