The Friday Report
Nemesis hasn't been at these gatherings. She has something wrong with her eyes and is having surgeries. But she called me the other day. She has some plants that someone gave her, but she can't keep them because her cat tries to eat them. Would I like them? You'd think this would be a five second phone call, but no. I have to learn the circumstances under which the plants came to be in her possession, how it was she had tried to avoid receiving the plants, the other people to whom she offered them, the fact that I had to repot them and return the original pot to her, where she lived, how she might be reached and on. I have rejected so many of her offers (aging and ancient craft supplies) that I had no choice but to say yes. The fact that I have no flat surfaces on which to stash more plants was no mitigating factor.
But you know, I'll figure something out. I am a genius after all.
*A carryover from last week. I don't know this off the top of my head.
