My friend’s wife was a teacher who worked for a principal who was notorious for killing every houseplant she ever owned.
So, when the principal retired, my friend’s wife and some other teachers chipped in and bought her a silk plant.
At the beginning of the next school year, the retired principal made a visit to her former school. She told the teachers who had given her the pant, “Usually, every plant I own dies. But I’ve watered this one every other day, and it’s just as green today as the day you gave it to me!”
