The Frailty of Life

“(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and … bring me back to life”

Frailty… Now there’s a word you don’t hear very often.
S.A.T words… Vocabulary… Msamiati… Hmmmm…
Anyway, hi guys.

I’m trying to give this Post per Week thing a go. Yay? Nay? K?

Whatever.

So this week, I’m talking about death or more poetically, “The frailty of life”. More specifically, I’m talking about a potted plant.
Don’t look at me like that. What did you think I would be writing about? I’m not that morbid.
Now, I had a potted plant in my house. It’s surprising, I know, but since I’m about to become a husband…

Don’t do it!

 

Issa trap!

 

What are you thinking, man?

 

Think! Do you want to share your salary?

 

Marriage? Hahaha!

As I was saying, since I’m about to become a husband, I thought it wise to spruce up the place. Like how birds do when they perform those mating/courtship dances. Like nesting but for dudes. So I got on Pinterest and found some ideas for old Nutella jars. I planted an Aloe in one. It was doing very well.

There aren’t any aloe bitmojis.

And then it wasn’t.
Now the feng shui of the house is all out of whack.
Aloe, you have made me vera unhappy.
Why would a plant die after I gave it some water? What kind of logic is that?

And it’s not like I don’t have a green thumb. I grew up on a farm… Well, technically, I didn’t grow up on a farm… My parents have a farm though, and I’ve never killed a plant before.
So now I have a dead plant.

An Aloe on the other side.

I apologize to the vegans for messing with their food (and also for this picture).

Anyone know where I can get a plastic plant? Ama we banned those too?

See you next week.

  1. You got me there when you said you wanna talk about death. For a moment i paused and asked myself if i want to read about death early in the morning, but then i was curious what you want to say so i went ahead to read….LOL
    Kudos….I love potted flowers too but for now i have two plastic plants. (Don’t Judge) Looking forward to having real potted flowers which hopefully will not disappoint after i give them water…
