"You Let It DIE!"

I am a huge fan of "How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days." Who isn't? The only difference between me and most other people is I pretty much have the entire thing memorized and I like to use this talent to reenact parts of it in my everyday life. The "my boyfriend thinks I'm fat! I can't eat in front of you. I CAN'T EAT IN FRONT OF YOU! line is a personal favorite. Dan particularly loves hates it.

Around the beginning of December Dan brought me home this beautiful little Poinsetta plant.  It was particularly sweet since he remembered how much I love them, especially around Christmas time.  The only problem is...it is a plant. I don't mix well with plants.  So I told him to not be too offended when it inevitably died in a matter of weeks.  At which point he looked at me and said "Oh babe, this is like our own personal love fern (get the 10 Days reference?)...its our, uh, partnership poinsettia. You can't let it die." 


I have tried my damnedest. Other then give this stupid plant mouth-to-mouth resuscitation I have done everything in my power to keep this stupid plant alive for the last two months. Unfortunately, this is what it looks like now:


Dan is getting particular joy out of grabbing it and proclaiming "Our Partnership Poinsettia! You let it DIE!"

My boyfriend and I have a love plant that we keep at his house (his place gets better light) and he's always asking me if I've watered it because we can't "let it DIE!"

That's too funny! Hope it hangs in there a little longer. I threw my Christmas poinsettias in the trash - I didn't know you were supposed to keep them. Oops!

I saw the title of this post in my reader and immediately got the reference. I LOVE that movie!! I used to watch it over and over and over again during college. I basically have the whole thing memorized too. I love "you think maybe he thinks the felt is grass?"

Great movie! Nick is definitely the green thumb in our relationship. (He even left instructions for me to refer to while he's out of town for two weeks!) I've had the best luck with spider plants. And bonus points: they help to filter the air.

Oh dude. I haven't watched that in a while. Must bust it out! OMG, when the dog defiles the poker table. Priceless.
