What do you guys think about when your mowing & be honest

When I had my walker which was painful I tried to think the grass was money now with the rider I cant stop thinking about how much easier life is and fun it is to sit and work.

I think about sex, putting AFR heads and bore my car to a 383, life, future goals, what project I can sell to the customer on that lawn and how to get the other guys lawn.

I'm usually just thinking about SEX!!!!! That's why I mow, it gives me more time to think about it.

I agree it comes so natural I forgot and even when I leave the yard I still look at the lines.

I don't know if there is a time that I don't think about sex.

What I think about while mowing? I think my mind turns to jello when the engine starts, because I can't recall thinking about anything while I'm mowing. I just relax and go with the flow.
