Introducing Matilda

matilda aMatilda is a happy cactus that sits all day on the windowsill or on my desk, looking pretty. She’s a perfect listener. I share with her my thoughts and ideas, and she always listens patiently.

Pretty she is, but she’s also though. She needs only sunlight, and every two weeks, a bit of water from the tap. Sometimes I water her with my tears, shed because of mean hatted women.

So far Matilda is doing well. She will probably keep coexisting with me for many years. That is good, for I have much to learn from her: patience, self-sufficiency, yellowness.

  1. Plants & pets can be the best listeners most of the time. I like that your cactus is 2 different colors. 🙂

  2. I like the word “yellowness” and how you used it. 🙂 I agree, Matilda is very engaging to look at.

      1. Haha. I will, right now. But it would be even better if you collect for me one of your tears in a vial, and send the vial to me. Flowers watered with tears are the most beautiful.

      1. Find some ladies you think would look good in a hat, and send them some, like flowers, with a lovely card attached to them from you, their secret admirer. Ask them to wear it to a cafe and meet them there secretly..

If you leave me a comment I will send you an invisible gift.
