Magic Shake-Ball

I know that this fallen tree incident is starting to become an obsession of mine, but hear me out: bitter neighbor lady #1, whose garage got crushed by most of the tree, never returned our calls offering to go in on the tree removal costs--she just went ahead and removed her portion and left ours hanging there like a middle finger pointing right at us. That is some crazy passive-aggressive she-ite. It's not like we did anything to her. Meanwhile, bitter neighbor lady #2, who actually owns the tree that did all this, is just sitting back and hiding out. Now my husband is so pissed off that he wants to get a chainsaw, chop up the part that's still lying on our property, and throw it into both of their yards. The cheap, satisfying solution? Yes. The solution most likely to end with him cutting his femural artery and ending up an invalid--all because of these 2 crazy women? Possible.

Okay, Magic Shake-Ball, show me what you've got. Do I let him near the chainsaw or not?


Why, this it is: my heart accords thereto,
And yet a thousand times it answers "no."

Thanks, Shake-Ball. I owe you one.
