The garden hose is my nemesis. It refuses to be a good sport; it catches on chunks of broken concrete that I scatter about as retaining walls, pieces of flagstone that I toss onto my garden paths, and bricks that I line beds with. It kinks, it nooses tender plants, it resists mating with the upsy-downsy sprinkler or any other perfectly acceptable companion. It leaves brown snaky spots on my lawn and allows itself to be used as an ant superhighway to my arms. It wads itself up into a knot and tries to break my hips. It overturns potted plants and scares the dog. Some day soon the hose will pay: I have discovered that PVC can be run above ground, and the hose shall soon be reduced to a mere supporting role in the garden.
