Matt peered from behind shuttered windows and spied his foe mocking him, challenging him to engage in grueling combat. They'd met many times before with Matt emerging victorious each time, but the battles were beginning to take their toll. Unfortunately, he knew their rivalry would never be over.

Blowing an exasperated sigh, Matt reluctantly trudged to where he stored his cache of weapons and selected his favorite. Once again, Matt would clash with an enemy he couldn't seem to vanquish. Resigned to his fate of fighting an endless war, Matt fired up the engine and proceeded to mow his lawn.

    Wonderful! Go, Matt, cut him to the quick. Well done, Michael, you had me fooled right to the end :-)
