Did you know I once grew pot?

Back in the 1980s, we lived in a small country town. The house across the road was owned by a very eccentric character. He was nice enough but could be very cutting and quite unkind if he took a disliking to you. Luckily, we got on well with him. He had to go away for a few days and asked me to water some plants he had in pots near the back door. He said they were tomato plants. I was very anxious about this task as I mostly kill plants. But these stayed alive and even looked to be doing well. It was only weeks later that he told me I’d been watering his marijuana plants. Have you ever picked up that I’m pretty gullible? Today’s chores include a trip to Ikea to pick up two small cupboards, an afternoon tea at the clubhouse as a welcome to new residents to our village and a movie tonight at the same clubhouse. And I need to do the ironing. The expected temperature today is 36°C (96.8°F).

It's actually pretty difficult to kill pot plants. Not that I would know first-hand, as far as you know. I was once growing a small plant in my house and mom got nosy when she came for a visit. She asked me what the plant was and I told her it was a wild tomato plant... (It wasn't her business, so felt no need to be truthful. *shrug*) Later, I laughed and told her what it actually was.
@JudyEv What a sly one he was not telling what was really in the pots. It can happen to anyone and not just you that someone would say one thing and mean something else. Did you smoke the pot when you knew what it was he was growing there? I went to IKEA here once and it was very big and had to take a bus or two to get there and really did not find what I wanted at the time and cannot remember what it was. As far as I know winter is here and so is the rain this week if what I read is correct. I try to not have to go outside except early in the morning to throw out the garbage so do not check the weather to see how it is later on.
Well many things happen in life. At times, we have hard lessons to learn. By the way, I did my weekly WC cleaning with Harpic and brush. It took 5 to 6 minutes but it made me satisfied! 36 C and humid or dry? If humid, then you need to have your fans and ACs in good condition!!

Thankfully it is rarely humid. The A/C works too well and leaves us shivering. We switch it on for a while then off for a while but we are contacting someone today about it. It was the same with winter when the rooms just got hotter and hotter. The thermostat can't be working properly.
