Attack Of The Killer Mantis
I know what you're thinking. You're looking at this photo and saying to yourself, `Dude, how is that rototiller driving itself?' It's pretty amazing, isn't it. Well, the truth is that someone is steering that little two-stroke bad boy, aka a Mantis rototiller. If you look closely, maybe you can see Taylor there manning the Mantis. See? The blond hair ... right there between the big pine tree and fence ... Yeah, you can? Now I know what you're thinking: `Why is Taylor wearing camo jammies?' Well, the truth is that they aren't camo jammies. They're camo, for sure. That's obviously quite obvious. It's a camo getup Taylor wears when he becomes "The Taylorator" during Airsoft battles with his camo upped homeboys out in the Gloucester woods. (For the uninformed, Airsoft is a war-style game using realistic "toy" guns that spit out plastic BB-kind of things. Don the safety glasses, the camo, some tick repellant and you're good to go.) Which has nothing to do with rototilling our little raised bed garden. This photo was taken on Saturday after a long day in the woods battling his buddies in Airsoft. He couldn't wait to get home in the garden. That's my boy.
