My son and I recently visited a plantation. It was a proper plantation, complete with cotton plants. And there was plenty of cotton still hanging off of them.
My son couldn't resist. He had to pull some off.
"Just a couple, Bubba," I said.
Well, a couple turned into an entire hand full.
I gave him my mommy evil eye. "What are you going to do with all that cotton?" I asked.
He looked at his fist-full of white stuff. "I don't think it's enough to make a shirt. So I think I'll go home and plant it in the backyard. Then we'll have a lot of cotton. Next year I can pick it, and you can make the shirt."
Before I go, I would like to let you know that I'm also over at Erin Fanning's Blog, where she interviewed me. Please stop by to find out what zoo creature I'd be if I could, and what super power I would have if it was possible.
