It’s for your health

On the first warm spring Saturday this year I was at the neighborhood garden center with Samuel. I’d come in search of a couple of new seasonal plants for our terrace stone planters. Samuel, however, was more interested in getting himself dirty in the sandbox and watching the canary. When headed up to the check-out counter, I realized with dismay that a long line had formed while I’d been aimlessly enjoying the fresh spring blooms. I chided myself for having missed our opportunity to get in and out of the garden center in a timely manner. However, while I waited in line I couldn’t help but overhear a conversation between fellow customers nearby.
