My name is not always The Redhead Riter. I am also frequently called Mommy and I used to be called The Wife, but at work I am infamously known as The Plant Killer. In spite of such a terrible reputation as killing every living plant within my immediate area, a co-worker named Eric believes that I have a hidden green thumb. A couple weeks ago I received an email that read:
- “You have been tasked to watch my Barbie girls for me. You’ve heard of Malibu Barbie? Well, you have Bamboo Barbie……LOL. Thanks!”
At first, I had no idea what in the world he was talking about, but then it hit me. I looked up to the shelf that is usually bare and sure enough, there sat the Bamboo Barbies. Apparently I have a month long plant sitting duty.
Being the Daddy to three girls has definitely had an effect on Eric’s lingo and maybe his brain since he is leaving his beloved plants in my care.
I hope I don’t kill the Barbies.
Ewww, that just wouldn’t be a pretty sight.
