Moral Mondays: “Listen Before You Speak”


It’s hard living with someone who knows everything. Worse when they make that fact known and tell you that any knowledge you have is useless.

So when the time came to build the garden it was another case of this is how it’s done.

I’d been growing tomatoes a long time and knew the soil and the places best to cultivate them.

But my partner knew better. It was her way or no way to the point of me being banned from the garden.

That year the fruit fly grew fat and we bought a lot of tomatoes.

    And you probably couldn’t say, “I told you so,” either. Great take on the moral 🙂

    That’s the thing isn’t it…they never listen do they.
    I’ve had a similar experience 🙂

  3. To plant or not to plant, to grow ot not to grow…age old questions. 💙

    I hate to say, “I told you so,” but . . .
    😀 This was a great take on the prompt. I just love those people who know EVERYTHING. It’s that much more satisfying when they’re proven absolutely WRONG!
