Our neighbours went on holiday last week and before they left, I asked if there was anything we could do for them while they're away. M said, "Oh yes actually, could you please water my plant? I've had it for 20 years, and it's still going strong. My dear friend gave it to me and I know that as long as it's alive, I will always remember her. She died a few years ago, but I still have that plant."
You just know what's going to happen by the time they get back, don't you?
