I wonder if the author of 'Reaping and Binding' had ever done any of that form of work. You'll note
that the viewpoint character had a SICKLE in his hand, I've done some reaping with a SCYTHE in my
youth and it was bloody hard work but at least one can stand more or less upright. I don't believe
that stooping over to use a sickle all day would ever have been described as 'pleasant' except by
someone who only was an onlooker at farmwork.
