"Home is where you come to when you have nothing better to do."
-Margaret Thatcher, Vanity Fair, May 1991
Finally got into the yard yesterday. I spent much of the day thatching. I used a thatcher*.
That's right, I was thatching. I was word-that-doesn't-exist-outside-of-Home-Depot-ing.
As we know, thatch is not a verb. At least, not in this manner. The transitive verb form of thatch actually refers to the act of laying down thatch, not pulling it out and putting it in a bag and driving it to the compost heap. And that's all I have to say about that.
*If Mark Twain were around, you know he'd be selling a Becky Thatcher on QVC.
