I wish I had plants that told me things more useful, such as how long that bottle of salad dressing has been sitting at the back of the shelf under the kitchen counter. What, it's eight months past its sell-by date? Or maybe I just need higher shelves, or maybe I should just check them more often to see what's been shoved to the back. There's stuff from last summer there that I've totally forgotten. I'd better check the other low shelves, too.
Oops. Interruptions. The hidden price of telephone service. Oh, I think I was done anyway.
