don’t give me plants

You might remember, neither of my thumbs is green.

My friend Lisa showed up at the office on Friday with a lovely and healthy potted plant for me and the words, “I know you don’t like when people give you plants.”

She’s right, but that doesn’t stop her. Cut flowers are a much better gift because I don’t have any guilt when I throw them away several days later.

So I smiled and received her gracious gift, then pulled out from hiding a plant that only three days earlier had signs of new life.

I should get some credit for keeping it alive since July. It was a gift from my boss.
