Life Lessons

They say you should learn something new every day. It's a little after noon, and I've already got a couple under my belt:

  • If you're going outside with the intention of pruning the rose bush, for God's sake woman, put on some shoes!

  • We have one rose bush in the front bed, not two like I'd previously thought. Clever disguise, rose bush, but I've figured you out!

  • If you have the bad habit of putting your tongue between your teeth when you're concentrating, and if you went to the dentist this morning and your entire mouth is numb, you probably shouldn't work on pruning the rose bush until after you get the feeling back in your mouth. That is if you ever plan to use your tongue again.

  • You may think you're a kind and patient person when it comes to plants, but a climbing rose will quickly take it right out of you.

It's been a busy day.
