i don’t pay a lot of attention to flora.
i don’t like gardening, i don’t like owning plants. all of this comes from my repulsion to touching dirt.
but this morning i finally realized that the backyard has smelled so good for the past week or so because the lilac bushes bloomed.
today was bizarro because i was sick of the yard looking ugly, so i weeded.
until one of the seed pods from the morning glory
monster weed ate my hands and made me bleed.
then i decided i was done communing with nature. nature, however is not done with me, and i still have one of the spines in my finger. 3 nurses and a hypodermic needle* couldn’t get it out.
*this was at easter dinner where there were 3 nurses present – i didn’t go to the ER for a splinter
