Now is this coincidence … that on MNET there is a TV program about a single mother growing weed (funny enough called “Weeds“), selling it to her whack nextdoor neighbours, and in my mother’s back garden a little weed bush growing?
Yesterday, as I was braaing with my boet in my mother’s back garden I saw something out of the corner of my eye. Behind the weber, in the flower bed. Could it be? I had found a small, but very healthy looking marijuana plant.
Is my mother a drug dealer? Hmmm… my brother and me are now both wondering.
I could really go to town on this article and make up some great story how she is selling to her friends in Lakeside. But, I am quite sure she is not, and I am sure I could send her to jail if some police officer were to read this. Oh how I love the power of a blog!
The conversation we had was as follows:
Mark: “Ma why is there a marijuana plant growing in our back garden?”
Mom: “What!! Show me”
We both walk into the back garden.
Mark: “Right thurr” (pointing to the marijuana plant)
Mom: “Is that what it is, I’ve been watering that plant for the last week waiting for it to bloom!”
P.S. The sign next to the “blooming plant” reads “May all my weeds be wild flowers” which we found in another flowerbed about 10m away from this little guy. Coincidence?
