I've had this jade plant for five years. It just flowered.
According to Feng Shui, jade is a prosperity magnet. A money plant, if you will. And I'm a believer. A stranger at the laundromat just gave me twelve free minutes on his dryer!
Did I later find an entire clove of garlic in that dryer? Yes. Do my clothes now smell like lavender AND GARLIC? I don't want to talk about it. My point is, it's my lucky day.
My name is Nasreen. I write micro essays, one-liners, and other small things. Most of them were funny at some point, at least to me.
