Healing Power of Solar Flowers
My cubicle mate can zap a thriving plant with a mere glance. Last year around this time a family member sent me a Paperwhites bulb kit. Like a knucklehead, I stuck the planter on the ledge connecting (or you could say "separating") our cubicles. You already know the punchline: I leave town unexpectedly, she kills the plants before Christmas, and we've got an awkward cube farmer situation on our hands.
Well, I've found something that I think will save the chlorophyll killer and me some mutual discomfort this holiday season: Takara's solar-powered Flower Cube. The smiley-faced plastic flowers run on ambient light and overhead office light. If you connect a few Flower Cubes together, they'll wave in unison. They're selling at Rocketworld for $7.24 a cube. I just hope she laughs, since I'm not making fun, I'm celebrating her unique talent!
