day 10: power

lesson one today. don't ever let me weed your garden. today, in an attempt to be helpful, i decided to weed my mother's garden. should be easy enough, you know, with all the little things barely popping out of the ground, and weeds are pretty obvious, aren't they?

apparently not. at least, in my case. mom asked me if i weeded when she got home.

"yes, i only pulled up what i was sure were weeds," i said, eagerly, as we ate dinner.

she smiled. proceeded to tell me that i pulled up a foxglove.

OOPS. well, a lesson learned.
