Dear Awesome Moxie-Dude Reader,
Possibly in celebration of the fact that it’s not my birthday, and possibly in the spirit of “today is the first day of the rest of my life”, I decided to water my plants today.
If you’re a writer too, you know damn well that whenever your plants get watered, it’s a sure sign that you’re avoiding the blank screen in front of you.
Another name for it is PROCRASTINATION.
Anyways, as I was going through the task of walking around my house with the watering jug, I noticed this odd-looking growth on the plant I keep in my bedroom. I’ve had this plant for about 13 years and it has never decided to grow these phallus-like off-shoots.
I don’t mean to sound paranoid or anything but, WHAT THE HELL?!!
I’m confused because I thought only ANIMALS mate during spring. And WHERE does it plan on putting that thing?
Clearly I need to brush up on my botany. Also, that plant is no longer allowed to watch me get changed. I’ve moved it to my office, right next to my desk so that I can keep an eye on it.
Meanwhile, here’s a link to the latest Musings by Mona column, Parents These Days.
