When I'm having a stressful day I think about why I didn't become a florist. Then I get home and look at my dying basil plant on my windowsill and realize that while I think flowers are lovely and smell even better, I just don't have the necessary green thumb to keep anything alive outside the mold growing on my bread.

However, that doesn't stop me from daydreaming and envying those who do get to be florists.
