Grrl and I just went to the supermarket to get some stuff. We are debating whether to get another Alocasia, like this one:
We bought this one when they appeared in the New Year. Since then we've been watching the other Alocasia wentii on sale. Every time we go there to shop they look at us with doleful leaves asking to be taken to a good home. Finally last week we found that we had won our standoff with the supermarket, as they reduced the plants to half price. So we took another oversized waif home, and it's now recovering in the bedroom. But there are still two poor plants left, waiting to find a good home. Will we resist? Should we?
The other event of note from the supermarket happened in the drinks section. A gentleman came up to us with a bottle of wine and asked us (in German) if he was holding white wine. We both looked at him, looked at the bottle containing the obviously clear wine, and told him "yes".
