Pot Plant

My mother stood outside inspecting what little of our garden that actually grows – with no silver bells or cockle shells, and absolutely no pretty maids all in a row – when she found an intruder. I was busy loading the washing machine and wasn’t too bothered with it all.

“What is that?”

“A plant” I replied.

“What type of plant?”

“A green one that grows in soil.”

“No, is it a weed or a tomato bush? Maybe it’s… A drug plant.”

I stopped what I was doing, took a quick glance at the ‘drug plant’ in question and laughed.

“It’s not pot, Mum.”

“How do you know?”

“You sent me to a public high school.”

  1. Funny… I especially like that AdSense is showing an ad from eBay for “Pot seeds”! What doesn’t eBay sell?? I wonder what you’d get for blogging about something really bizarre like replacement kidneys or spray-painted dogs.

  2. Jazarus, when I wrote this I knew someone, sometime, somewhere, would make that assumption. Even though I said, “I stopped what I was doing, took a quick glance at the รขโ‚ฌหœdrug plantรขโ‚ฌโ„ข in question and laughed” not “I stopped what I was doing, broke out my bong in anticipation, took a quick glance at the รขโ‚ฌหœdrug plantรขโ‚ฌโ„ข in question and was saddened that it wasn’t my beloved cannabis.” Congratulations on being that someone.
