'Fess up

Everybody has something they do that's "wrong". Some people take the last donut. Some people get fired all the time. Some people steal parking spots from little old ladies.

Me? Well, I kill plants. I've tried and tried and tried to keep them alive. I follow the instructions of people far wiser than myself about the care and feeding of plants only to fail in the end. I should throw in the towel. I was doing really well with an orchid I was given but that, too, is now dead.

The worst part about that dead orchid? I'm going to replace it so the given doesn't find out I killed it.

Now it's your turn. 'Fess up. What do you do?

Oh man, out of all the house plants you could try and try to keep alive, I think orchids are probably the hardest. Though, MAYBE it's easier in California.

What do I do wrong? Hm. Consistently? This is tough - I mean, there's lots of things I do wrong but I don't know if I do them all the time. Besides NOT cleaning my house. If you don't do something does that count as doing something?

I think I better think about this some more.
