Coffee Break Confessions: The Struggle of Talking to Our Houseplants Like They're Our Coworkers

Hey fellow freelancers! Let's take a hilarious detour from our work hustle and share our guilty pleasure: treating our houseplants like colleagues during coffee breaks. :seedling::hot_beverage:๏ธ Do you catch yourself giving pep talks to your fern or discussing project deadlines with your succulents? Join us for a laugh-filled chat where we spill the beans (pun intended) on our quirky habit of turning foliage into faux coworkers. From watering schedules becoming team meetings to brainstorming sessions with your focus, let's embrace the absurdity of our green-thumb gossip. Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or just dipping your toes into the world of office shrubbery, come share your most absurd conversations and bond over the hilarity of botanic banter. Grab your cup of joe, settle in, and let's leave the stress behind for a moment of pure plant-powered comedy! :herb:๐Ÿ˜„

Hi, Mahrukh. It's an interesting, fresh topic. 

It was the first time I tried to talk to a plant. Now my cat is chewing on it, probably jealous.

Haha! It sounds like you had quite the experience with your plant and cat. Sometimes, our pets can surprise us with their antics. Hopefully, your plant survives the encounter unscathed. Do you often have interesting interactions like this with your pets?

I usually look at their behaviour. But it's hard to keep quiet when they do something amazing. What about you, have you ever raised a pet or a plant from a pea?

My plants don't snore the way my cats do, so they are always welcome, except during Zoom meetings when I have to blur them or opt for a different background to avoid people drifting off into the foliage (which is behind me). But the rosemary needs a pep talk every day until the weather gets warmer. I say, "Soon, my little princess, you'll be able to go back outside, so please, for G* sake, hold onto those needles!"

It sounds pretty good๐Ÿค—

Alright folks, gather 'round! New rule alert: I'm not chatting up with the houseplants, okay? They can't join our team meetings, sorry.

I've got just 20 more things left on my to-do list, and it's due in 5 minutes. ๐Ÿคฃ

 

Well, you have time to correct your list. But What is better cut the things or stretch the time?

I adjust it with time and my next morning shift from lazy start to active start of the day ๐Ÿ™‚

PEP TALKS 

YES. Before, I would say it out loud and then realized I must sound crazy ๐Ÿ˜†, so I now just talk to them quietly in my head, hoping telepathy works.

Talking to my Peace Lily here, it's like talking to a friend.


Been putting in the work, but hey, still got a ways to go, both in life and career.

Time to get back to it.
