An Herbal Remedy

I had quite a few fresh herbs left over from Thanksgiving prep, none of which I was passionately attached to, so I offered them today on Freecycle. A lady responded and I said I'd put them out for her . . . but we didn't set a time.

Off I went to church.

When I got home, I had an e-mail from her saying she would send her husband by in a few minutes. I looked at the time and GACK! It was before I left for church!

So I e-mailed her back, apologized profusely, and said they were on the porch for her to come by at her convenience.

She responded: "Yes, my husband was there and I was confused. He picked up your bag of vines instead. I am speechless."

The bag of vines was the large industrial size yard waste bag of English Ivy vines my son pulled yesterday.

I'm still grinning at the picture of him coming home proudly having "bagged" a big load of . . . herbs.

Makes you wonder what he thought they were having for dinner, doesn't it?

Now they are going to charge you for yard waste removal! LOL!
