You know the movie "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"? Well, remember the "love fern" in it? Devin and I have a love fern too. This is it...
Kinda sad looking, huh?
Yeah, so here's the story...Devin and I met when I was 15. Of course, I had the hots for him, but we couldn't really "date" until I was 16. So one day when we were hanging out at my house my mom decided to give this plant to Devin and tell him that if he could keep it alive until I was 16 he could take me on a date. Why she did this? I don't know, but he accepted the challenge and a few months later, when I turned 16, the plant was still alive and going strong.
While Devin was on his mission his mom took care of the plant and kept it alive. When he got home and we were married, we took the plant and have had it ever since. We've kept it trimmed really little and it's almost died a few times, but somehow it has managed to hold on.
So, knowing that background, here's the deal...I don't really like indoor plants. I think they are pretty and flowers are great, but taking care of a plant just isn't something I care to do. I don't know how this love fern is even still alive after 5 years of marriage and almost 3 years previous to that. So, I told Devin I just wanted to throw the plant away and he didn't really like that idea. Now, I am a sentimental person, but I don't think throwing away this plan is like saying, "I give up on our relationship and don't care anymore." I just don't want this little plant. I don't know, I guess it just sits on the armor and isn't really that much to care for, so maybe I'll just keep it.
What do you think? I am cold hearted because I'm not really attached to the "love fern"?
