I didn’t get called into Jury Duty today. So I’m going to plant flowers! Right after I go grocery shopping, I’m going to head down to Home Depot and pick out some flower and plant them.
All by myself.
I told Wizard my plan. His response was:
“You? By yourself? No magic? No help?”
Me, “Hey!I can buy and plant flowers, I’ve done it before.”
Smirking, Wizard asked, “When was the last time you planted flowers without my help?”
Frowning, I thought about it. “I don’t know, maybe last time you were in England?”
Raised eyebrows. “That was like five years ago. Wasn’t that the year they all died?”
Had they died? I didn’t remember. “You’re lying!” Cause he does lie just to torment me.
He grinned. “You realize you will have to dig in the dirt.” He paused dramatically and added, “There might be worms.”
Trying not to gag, I said, “I’m not afraid of worms.” As long as they don’t touch me. And damn it, did he have to say worms while I’m cooking spaghetti?
“Right. Sure. I believe you, Witch. So you’re really going to do this? By yourself?”
What choice do I have now? “Oh yeah, I’m doing this. And you’d better be impressed when you get home. You hear me, Wizard? No helpful suggestions or critiques. You. Will. Be. Impressed.” Oh yeah, I am that tough.
He grinned. “Impressed. Entertained. It’s all the same to me, Witch.” He laughed and walked out.
I’m so going to buy and plant those flowers. And they will live. Hmm, maybe I should buy fake flowers instead?
