Fake plants need love too!

When I saw this, after I stopped laughing and shaking my head, I knew I had to share it with you!

According to Michael Hollan of Fox News, “Woman discovers plant she’s been watering for two years is actually plastic.”

No Way!

Yes way!

OK…, watering a fake plant for two years is bad enough, but then admitting to it on Facebook and sharing it with everybody?!

“Plastic plants need love, too. They don’t, however, need water.”

“Caelie Wilkes shared her story on her Facebook page, where she wrote, ‘I’ve had this beautiful succulent for about two years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful coloring, just an overall perfect plant. I had it up in my kitchen window. I had a watering plan for it, if someone else tried to water my succulent I would get so defensive because I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent.’”

That succulent certainly does suck!

And excuse me…, but who would these people be who would be trying to covertly water her fake plant?

Anyway…, this perfect relationship with her plant could have continued on forever…, except…

“Unfortunately, when she decided to transplant the plant to a new vase, she made a shocking discovery.”

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

‘“I go to pull it from the original plastic container it was purchased with to learn this plant was fake,’ she wrote. ‘I put so much love into this plant! I washed its leaves. Tried my hardest to keep it looking its best, and it’s completely plastic! How did I not know this? I pull it from the container it’s sitting on Styrofoam with sand glued to the top!’”

“Wilkes, a stay-at-home mom [that’s scary], shared photos of the plant, which does look to be real from the top. Once pulled from the container, however, it’s clearly not alive.”

‘“I feel like these last two years have been a lie,’ Wilkes concluded.”

I know how you feel Caelie.  I felt that way about the two years expended on the fraudulent Mueller Report.

Caelie lives in California.

You wouldn’t happen to live in Adam Schiff’s district would you, Ms. Wilkes?

Maxine Waters’?

Nancy Pelosi’s?

That would at least begin to make a little sense.
