    For me personally I have considered a career in gardening and actually tried it myself.

    Everything was going well. I was trimming bushes, weeding weeds and of course planning the garden layout.

    The real issue was when a lovely couple by the name of Dave and Dorothy asked me if I could plant some grass along the bank. My heart was telling me to plant them, and my head was telling me to beak them. I resisted my head and managed to plant their grass seeds.

    Then they decided to present me with some sunflower seeds to plant along the grass. Let's just say I took those seeds under the wing and slowly waddled back to my establishment. I may have lost out on the job but they lost out on a lovely dinner.
