the smell of my desperation has become a stench

A little experiment

A few months ago Dane took the dogs on a hike in the hills up behind our house, and the fur around Coco’s butt gathered a few tiny cactus plants along the way. We carefully removed them when they got home and sat them on the countertop to stare at them in amazement. HER BUTT COLLECTED CACTI. What skill!

I had this tiny pot with a dying plant inside of it, so we yanked it out and replaced it with one of the cactus plants. And oh my god, it started to grow. Those two shoots formed on my watch! I’m sure those of you familiar with plants are shaking your head at me, but I feel like naming this thing because nature is taking place in my kitchen! Exclamation point!
