So I’m walking Ray this morning. I read my book while I walk because as anyone knows, walking a dog is boring.
I casually glance down at Ray and I notice he’s not in his halter. I’m walking an empty leash.
I look around and he’s where I last saw him, licking something on the ground.
I always let him lick the ground outside the steak restaurant.
I run back and put on his halter.
I notice a big construction worker standing there laughing.
“Very funny. Why didn’t you say something?”
“I figured you’d realize sooner or later when you saw how light your leash was.”
“Glad you got a few yucks.” I walked away with as much dignity as I could muster.
I’m not feeling that good about myself now anyway.
Lizzie is the greatest friend. She does a million things for me.
She lets my family stay in her apartment when they visit.
I only had to mention that I wanted to start painting again and she sent me a bunch of paints.
That’s just an example. Like I said she’s a great friend.
I, on the other hand, suck as a friend.
The only thing she asks of me is to pick up her mail and water her plants while she is in Santa Fe and she only has 2 plants.
Please feel better about yourself. Soon.
But you are still watering the plastic fern, right? Thanks a million! xoxo
I am and it’s looking good.
That plant is just taking a little nap, it is perfectly healthy. One must be very careful not to over water, root rot is a serious problem! 😂
Sure now you tell me.
I’m lonely for you.
On my 3 year watch those plants flourished! !
How tough can watering a couple of plants be? During the total time I lived in that apartment, about 5 years, not a. single plant expired
You may not feel good about yourself right now, but just know that you gave one of your readers a good laugh today. That should count for something! No?
Watering plants is an art.
Sure NOW you tell me
I do not have a green thumb, no indoors plants in my place and it’s the reason that all my outdoor plants are hardy, mostly drought resistent perennials. Glad you realized that Raymond got off his leash. That construction worker might have just snatched him up!
