Exotic Day Trip Planned
Sunday morning here at the Church of the Batshit Crazy and I'm about to travel down to Medart, Florida with Kathleen and two other friends from the play to go to a crazy, wonderful nursery called Just Fruits and Exotics.
If you are any sort of gardener at all you can get into serious trouble at Just Fruits. They have plants you've never heard of but upon seeing realize you have wanted your entire life and must have immediately.
Mr. Moon cringes when I go to Just Fruits. Lucky for him we don't have enough sun here for me to plant, oh, an orchard so I usually just pick up a few little things that I think might do here in this shady yard.
Kathleen already knows she wants two kiwis and an orange tree. That's Kathleen. She thinks things through, knows where she wants to put her plants and executes her plans with no muss and no fuss. She's a Druid and a scientist so that makes sense. And she has a lot of sun in her yard.
I don't know what Judy and Denise are wanting to get. I am just now getting to know them and I'm excited that we're going to make this little day-trip together. It's wonderful to make new friends, especially at my age.
Anyway, that's what I'm doing today. Traveling down to Wakulla County to a plant nursery and maybe we'll find lunch somewhere too.
And without a doubt, we'll be stopping at the convenience store where they have the XLERATOR hand drier to pee and wash and dry our hands. I have written about the XLERATOR before. Here.
I still laugh out loud every time I use one. I laugh so loudly they can probably here me in the parking lot. I laugh because this drier is so powerful that it pushes your skin into weird and unlikely shapes which ripple and move as you move your hands and arms under the drier. It's freaking AWESOME! I'm surprised there isn't a cult of XLERATOR devotees. An entire website dedicated to its awesomeness, a search engine for everyone to find the nearest XLERATOR.
So yeah, we'll be stopping at the Kangaroo for something to drink and to wash our hands.
It's going to be a fun day.
I hope yours is too.
