forgotten

There was a little competition going on here at work. My buddy and i both got tiny rose bushes for valentines day. My co-worker's plant was going gangbusters and sprouting little leaves and thorns at an astonishing rate. My poor little guy was just limping along. She would look at my pot full of stark branches and tiny leaves and just giggle to herself. She would talk to her rose bush and pet it... she'd bring it over to my desk to compare. "Yes indeed," she would think to herself, "I have a green thumb and I'm raising a jolly green giant!" and then.. it happened... we came back from a 3 day weekend and her plant, her BABY.. was dead. It simply shriveled up and died. It sat, until yesterday; on her desk... just a pot full of sticks poking up thru a clump of dry dirt. It now lives on jesus' desk where I'm sure it will flourish again.

Yo, Myra! Who has the green thumb now?!
