That line may be the best way to end all stories from here on out.

Calamondin tree

I’ve always wanted an indoor citrus tree. This past weekend, I got one. Sweeeeeet.

It’s a calamondin tree! Kim, Corene, and Ari named it Colin. At regular intervals, we’d say, “I/you got a tree!” I still have that chanting in my head now, except to the tune of I’m On A Boat.

After I dropped the ladies off, it rustled in conversation from the backseat.

Hello, tree! It’s already budding, and originally had three fruits already ready. I’ll let you guess what happened to the third one.

I won’t let you guess for long. Kim texted me asking if I’d tried the fruit yet, so I did. I like!

I have a tree!
