ErsatzRose slapped her hand against a tree trunk and was startled by the hollow echo. "I always wanted to visit Central Park, but this isn't what I expected."

The Doctor nodded at the vast field of green before them. "It happened not long past your time. Some idiot thought it would save money to introduce genetically modified grass that was resistant to pesticides, it cross-pollinated to other plant species and a super weed smothered the park."

"So they replaced everything with fakes?"

Jack snorted derisively. "I don't know what they were thinking. Artificial grass is a nightmare for friction burns."

Hurray for the smutty last line!!! :D

(The rest of it was amusing too.)

How could I resist something like that? Happy to have amused you.

friction burns
Yeah, it is. I mean -- I've heard.

Re: friction burns
One of those things you generally don't admit to knowing. A co-worker once arrived at work limping. When asked why, he replied that he had friction burns on top of his feet. He never did live that down.

Re: friction burns
On top of his -- okkkaaaayyyy .....

I had a coworker who once shoed up with rope burns on her wrists. Sadly, she'd never go out with me.

Ahhh, Jack... how I do love the lad.

Worked your way through to the Jack episodes yet?

Not yet - I can usually only sneak in one hour of viewing time per day, so I'm going slow. But oh, man, am I loving these!

...The scary thing is that I can see that happening.

Also, Jack? Is priceless. :-)

It really isn't a great leap in speculation, is it? Especially when you consider that Monsanto invented Astro-Turf, have since sold the division off, but an interesting thought none the less.

Good ole' Jack - just his kind of comment!

Ah, Jack. Interrupting a serious dicussion of human folly with comments about sex. How can you not love him?
