My extremely handsome son George and I. Or should that be 'and me'? I have never worked that out. I'm the same with apostrophes. Never quite sure where they should go. Indeed, should the word apostrophes have an apostrophe? Have I just made two grammatical errors? Or should that be punctuation errors? I don't know. Doesn't really bother me that much. To be honest with you I don't even know why I mentioned it. Although if I did give it some thought, perhaps I could come up with a reason. Why do I get sidetracked like this? It drives me nuts. Have you ever wondered why abbreviation is such a long word? Or why dyslexia is such a hard word to spell? No, of course you haven't. Anyway, I digress. Now where was I?
Back to the orchids. Did you know that orchid actually means testicle? It's true! Apparently the orchid roots resemble the male testicles, and that is how it got its name. Orchid means testes. The orchid plant does not appear every year either. The testicle shaped roots can lie dormant for many years without anything happening, and then suddenly spring into life. Hey, I know that feeling!
