Every time a customer calls to place an order, that person is asked “would you like to include a note inside the cookie box?” Very often the usual “yes” is accompanied by “Just throw in your usual birthday note” or “His mom just passed away; what do people normally write?” The truth is, we don’t have a usual birthday note, and our customers don’t normally write anything.
Hello, my name is Miri, and I kill plants. Don’t get me wrong, I have the best of intentions when I’m picking out that hydrangea or basil plant, but in the end I just cannot keep them alive. It’s not like I can’t care for things. I have two dogs who I’ve kept alive for seven years (SEVEN!). But when it comes to plants, I have a black thumb all around - I simply just do not have the knowledge or skills to nuture them.
