Offtheglow

I watered a plant sitting by the kitchen sink. I heard a small voice.

"Mommy, offtheglow."

"I don't know what that means," I replied, unfazed by the indiscernible babble that sometimes comes out of that little blonde-headed kid that lives underfoot.

"Offtheglow, Mommy. To water your plants. If you use the sink, you could make a big mess. Offtheglow is so beautiful and easy."



That does it. No TV today.

I don't have any plants, but oh my Jeezy, how I want those damned water-baubles! Do they come in any colors besides rusty-trailer grandma?

I love it - that is hilarious. I have actually used an Aqua Globe for my plant at the office, and they work like a dream.

I'm going to go get a plant just so I can have an offtheglow

OH Aqua Globes, I get it. My boys tell me I need to get the Aqua Globes all the time. Since I do not have any plants (because they all died) I am not sure what I need them for.

Ephraim wants me to get some too. Even though I currently have no plants. He also bought me a ped egg for Christmas. He picked it out all by himself.

Devyn has recommended these for me too. The other recent one is the ShamWow. And the one she keeps pushing is the Buxton bag. Anytime I vacumme or can't remember where I parked she has got a solution from somthing she saw on TV. I think one day she will make a great sales woman because she can rememeber EVERYTHING they tell about the items they are selling on TV. It's pretty hilarious.

I think we can all agree, Aqua Globes are out for our children's blood. Their hypnotic superpowers are too strong. I, for one, welcome our plant-watering overlords.

I kinda need one of those for my office. I've killed five plants so far, and my last one is on its last leg.

My real concern about the Aqua Globe is that if half of the point of it is so that you don't forget to water your plants and they get the right amount of water as needed, what happens when you eventually forget to put water back in the aqua globe? And I some how doubt that I will have a ton of time to lounge around and read just because I have an Aqua Globe. I am just not sold.

That's where faith comes in, Scarlet. Faith in a higher power: the higher power being Aqua Globe.
