In another feat of complete and total consumerism I have purchased a plant for my desk. But not just any plant. A plant that does not have to be watered and never actually grows.
Yes, I have purchased the most useless piece of gadgetry known to mankind (but slightly more exciting than a pet rock), a Flip Flap. A solar powered plant that flaps its little leafs up and down.
The good thing is that I can’t kill it and its feelings won’t be hurt if I decide to abandon it. It is actually cute it a kitchsy Japanese anime sort of a way and I do find its movement a bit relaxing on my frazzled nerves. Weird.
