I discovered this a few weekends ago that Aedan has never seen a push-mower. He asked his Suey, “What kind of mower is that?” He was fascinated by the mower and wanted to help. I wager the spinning wheel that pulls the grass to the blade added to the entertainment value.
I assume it is built in foreshadowing in the blog; Aedan did get bored with mowing in short order. I am sure the fact that there were no bubbles involved with the mower played a significant role.
