yummy plants, stinky family

I spent a disastrous weekend in Columbia.  
- Taking care of my sick dad, which made me feel helpless.  
- Getting in a huge fight with my mom just because she is my mom and she is super crazy.  
- Also getting in arguments all weekend with my brother because he CANNOT stop talking about Fox News.  OBSESSED.

On Saturday I went down to my brother's nursery to buy my grandmother a plant.  She wanted a new hanging plant for outside her window at the nursing home.  My conversation with my brother went a little something like this...
me:  Hey, I need to get a plant for Grandmom.
brother:  So I saw something on Fox News just now that said prison inmates make bonuses and the prison guards don't.
me:  I just need a plant.  Which one should I take?
brother:  I mean, can you believe that crap?  This world is going to shit
me:  I don't care I don't care!  Which hanging plant will do the best in full sun?
brother:  Why don't you give a crap?
me:  Because maybe the prison guards don't deserve a bonus.  How the hell should I know?
brother:  You would say that.  Such crap.  F-ing liberals.
me:  Please.  I am begging you.  Will this plant work?
brother:  From now on (as if he doesn't already do this) every time I talk to you I am going to bring up an issue for us to discuss.  Just one.
me: (counting to 10) I am getting this plant and if it dies I will make sure to tell Gradmom to thank the prison system and those stupid liberals
I ended up buying her a hummingbird feeder instead.
