The Plant on the Window Sill at Work
A few weeks ago I was thinking about getting one of those indoor plants to put on my desk at work. I don't really know why, something to do I guess, although my desk is pretty cluttered as it is. Anyway, I decided in the end not to buy a plant, but then the other day I noticed while coming in to work, a little plant in a glass of water on the window sill opposite from my desk. I recognised it as the old, slightly withered plant that used to be down at the other end of the hall. I hadn't really paid too much attention to it before, but obviously it wasn't getting enough light where it was. It seemed much happier in its new residence. I wonder who moved it?
It was a pretty standard work day, with nothing much out of the ordinary happening. I went to the shops down the road for lunch and only realised that I had forgotten my book after I had already driven out the gates. After work however I had a book to take back to the library. The library was closed, but I put the book in the after hours returns box and went over to the park to read some more of Moby-Dick. Interesting read so far.
