Japanese Iris season.
I like it.
The butterflies like it.
Life is good.
I also like shopping at ginormous greenhouses.
Rows upon rows of blooming beauty.
The pointy planters.
The endless succulents.
It doesn’t suck is what I’m saying…. and I always come home with a car load.
And yes, there’s that.
This particular greenhouse even had a Dr. Seuss tree.
And something called a Sensitive Plant that I couldn’t stop touching.
Have you seen these things?
Touch them, and they cringe like Melania when Donald rolls over in bed.
But I didn’t buy one because…. let’s face it, it has to be touched. And I’d never get anything done if I sat around touching my plant all day now would I?
And while I’m sure some of my readers have a similar problem?
Try to refrain from sharing.
There are some mental images I just don’t need.
And I have the shirt to prove it.
People often say I’m a font of useless knowledge…
(Okay it’s just my husband who says that, and it’s usually to keep me from talking during John Wayne movies) But I do rock at Trivial Pursuit and no one will play with me anymore. So that means I’m going to have to share
the ridiculous tidbits that fill my head my fun facts here.
On a regular basis.
Shall we begin?
That’s the spirit.
#1. The first toilet ever seen on television was on Leave It To Beaver.
Why do I know this?
I don’t know… I just do.
#2. Dr. Seuss pronounced his name so it rhymed with rejoice.
Dr. Soice? Say it isn’t so!
But it is.
#3. A leech has 32 brains.
That seems like serious overkill, seeing that most government officials can’t find their first.
#4. The world’s widest road is the Monumental Axis in Brazil where 160 cars can drive side by side.
And you know that guy in the far left lane is still going to try and take that right hand exit 100 feet before the ramp.
#5. Three Mile Island is only 2.5 miles long.
Clearly a man named it, as they all measure 6 inches incorrectly.
I think this goes without saying.
