I’m so obsessed with terrariums. Brian got them for the HowAboutWe office and I think they’re genius.
I enthusiastically sent Madeline a picture, but her reaction was not what I had hoped…
Madeline: I sort of don’t get it?
Me: Get what?
Madeline: Why that’s cool?
I can think of no coherent argument as to why a tiny plastic monkey in a mason jar with a cactus is anything to get excited about. But the truth is I’m mad about them and want one of my very own.
Madeline: Maybe the picture doesn’t do it justice?
Actually, that’s a GREAT picture of that terrarium. Like, that’s it. That’s what it looks like.
Is my mania misguided and faddish?
I can’t tell except that I’m seriously considering signing up for a terrarium CLASS on October 11th.
…maybe I just need to get out of the house more.
