A few weeks ago I went shopping for new plants and lights for the back garden. What follows is the conversation my Brain had with it’s self.
*Brain* Weeeee!! Going shopping, going shopping, gonna by shiny things! Gonna by plants, gonna make the back yard look pretty again! Go go go come on lets go zoooooooom!
*Me* Must remember that I can’t spend the national debt in flowers and lights, really need to only get a couple of things, don’t need to get that much stuff.
*Brain and Me* driving driving driving, parking….
*Brain* Oh YAY we’re here flowers, shiny things, lights, flowers, trees, tables, chairs…..
*Me* Oh that’s a nice chair, I’ll have to remember to price that up on my way back this way.
*Brain* Come on come onnnnn wanna look at the shiny things out side…Ooooo watering can! Need one of those and it’s HUGE!!! ‘commands body to grab watering can and put in basket’ mmmm the shiny green watering can is ours!
*Me* hmmm pretty sure that watering can isn’t going to fit in the sink, and I’m sure that 12 on the side means how much it holds….’distracted by Brain jibbering about flowers’
*Brain and Me* flowers flowers picks out flowers and lights.
*Me* okay that’s enough, the basket looks like a forest and I’m tired lets go pay for this stuff and get out of here.
*Brain* awwww but… okay I’m kinda tired now too
*Brain and Me* oooops how much?
‘Time moves a long, plants have been planted and it’s time to use the new shiny Green Watering can’
*Brain busy looking smug*
*Me* I’m really sure this …’Thunk’ ahh see Brain I told you it wouldn’t fit in the sink to fill it!
*Brain* whoops… use the jug use the jug still save time watering!!
*Me* Good idea…*uses jug until watering can is full to the top*
*Me* unnngahhmm Brain that’s HEAVY! I knew that the 12 on the side also meant something!
*Brain* ummm well ummm I can’t help you with that, you’re just gonna have to make more trips aren’t you?
*Me* Brain some day I will stab you with a spork……
