a conversation with my mother:  

Mom: I think we need to get some strawberry plants from Heaton’s.

Kit: We bought raspberry plants, so now we need to get a planter.
Yes, we should do that.

Mom: Somebody’s selling them cheap come Thursday.

Kit: Planters?

Mom: Lidl, maybe. Or Aldi. Yeah. Planters.

Kit: We’ll have to look!

Mom: They’re €5, I think, at Heaton’s.

Kit: All right. I’m going to go see if I can get anywhere with this book. The problem is that I know where the chapter ends, but I don’t know really what happens before the ending.

Mom: Okay. Maybe the characters will tell you.

Kit: The strawberry plants?

Mom: Yes. maybe the strawberry plants will tell you what happens in the part before the ending.

Kit: If the strawberry plants would tell me I would hurry right over to Heaton’s to listen to them!

Do not listen to the strawberry plants. They are crap writers, and pretty much all they want is to introduce this violet-eyed red headed strawberry plant whom everybody loves, and who is super cool.

That's awesome. :)
Though sometimes it doesn help to step away and do and think about other things, or so I've heard.

The strawberries know all the answers. I've been convinced of that. They will give you all the advise you want as long as they can stay on the plant.

But the whipped cream has a better offer.
