What's a Lawn & Leaf Bag?

It was almost 70 degrees today. That meant that when I got off work, I had yard work to do. This morning I had taken matters into my own hands and called the trash company. I told the lady about my leaf problem. She said the cheapest way to handle it would be to get the lawn and leaf bags and set them out and it was $2.50 a bag to pick up with my trash.
Lawn and leaf bags?
I felt like Ralphie in the Christmas Story, when he was sitting on Santa's lap. Football? What's a football?
Leaf bag? What's a leaf bag?
Those black garbage bags...
Stoppppp! Ohhh, those black moving bags, you mean they're not just for moving shit when you're moving.
Knock me over with a feather.
So, after work I bought a big box of them, and they do work. You fill them with leaves and tie it up and it really does work. I've filled four bags already, and I probably have 10+ more to go. This part of the garden...oh me gosh, I could do without it. It's looking really nice, though, nice green stuff growing underneath.
And make sure you get the flex bags or you'll be pissed, there's lots of sticks mixed up in the leaves.
Seriously, I have to have a shower tonight before I go to bed. Ibuprofen, too.
