I discovered the perfect gift for men when I tried getting a Christmas cocktail
My story begins last Christmas after a day of agonizing Christmas shopping. I needed a drink! I didn’t need Christmas spirit. I needed Christmas spirits! Fortunately, an old college buddy of mine was having his annual Christmas party that night.
Usually, I stick to beer, but I needed more today. After a day of agonizing through a day of unsuccessful shopping, I was ready for some Christmas cheer.
Everyone was wearing ugly sweaters and sipping delicious looking cocktails. As I worked my way to the bar to make myself something, I asked a few friends what they were drinking. A friend suggested his cocktail was this amazing concoction made by Steve Daly, the guy everyone calls Mr. Green because he owns Perma-Green, a Lawn Care Company that’s been around since the early seventies. Everyone says Daly can grow grass on concrete. I figured I could persuade “Mr. Green” to make me this remarkable drink if I buttered him-up with my knowledge of grass. With millions of hours treating my lawn and reading fertilizer labels with a magnifying glass, I figured I could dazzle Mr. Green with my knowledge.
The perfect gift for men was revealed….and the drink was remarkable!
I figured I would start a little small talk about my lawn before moving in for the close. My plan was working. This guy loved to talk about growing grass and knows his stuff. I never realized how little I knew about growing grass. If I only met this guy years ago, I probably would have saved tons of money, aggravation, and more time with my family.
This guy made it fun to discuss the secret to having a healthy, green lawn. I also discovered all the money I have spent on Scott’s lawn care programs over the last 25 years was the same as if I would have hired Daly’s Perma-Green to treat my yard… and Perma-Green includes the application for the same price. Ughhh! I wish someone would buy me a full-season lawn care plan…now that would be an awesome gift anybody would love!
Then it hit me like a ton of lawn fertilizer. The best gift idea for men is having the best lawn in the neighborhood and more free time to enjoy it! This was the perfect gift that anyone would love to have!
