"You bought another plant!"
"I needed a plant to teach one of my kids yesterday, so I bought two."
He sighed with a smile and when we entered the apartment I made him walk around trying to locate the new arrival. "Is it that plant?" "What about that vine?" Until his eyes fell upon the small flash of green and orange above the kitchen sink. "You bought a cactus?!"
Yes, and he is adorable. I once swore I would never own a cactus, alas, it was almost love at first sight. The charm he possesses will soon be explained via picture. Once that darn camera turns up.
After Kip admired our new plant he turned to me and said, "I thought the surprise was that you had made me rice crispy treats." I laughed, cried out, and gave him a hug simultaneously. He gets home from work in about forty-five minutes, and I am planning on making some rice crispy treats, while talking to my cactus.
By the by, the dark green plant, covered in a galaxy of yellow stars? I named him Abraham.
