House plants

They say talking

talking to your plants

is healthy. So I did,


and after about

three weeks of talking,

to my surprise,

the plants began to pick

up a few words


They’d say things like,

“Hello, George”,

“Water, please, George”


“George, tell me about photosynthesis”


But I am not dumb,

this is not

so much a sign of



as it is

the rote


of sounds
