The Death of Ferdinand the Plantie

Background: The planties are from a Biology experiment from 9th grade having to do with getting little plants and subjecting them to various types of torture. Fedie was in my group, and his plant was named Charles Ferdinand II (aka Ferdie). My plant was appropriately named Cleopatra (the actual Cleopatra has a very famous death, for those non-history buffs out there), who was watered with salt water during the experiment. At the end of the project, miraculously, all three were alive. Even Cleopatra, though she was just about dead. Cleo died a long time ago, but Ferdie just recently passed away. I thought it was fair to let Fedie know what was going on.

he had a good life... but he was probably pining away for cleopatra. she died a long time ago, and ever since he was separated from her, it's just been going downhill.

how?!  he's the one who went into depression after Cleopatra died.  And you didn't inform me of this at all.  so how was i supposed to know?!! if you had told me i might have been able to smack some sense into him.  I'm now blaming you.

okay, who was the one who tried to nurse him back to health? me. and who was the one who abandoned him as a young child? you. i rest my case. obviously, his issues with relationships must have had roots in his traumatic experience as a child.

i didn't abandon him.  i nurtured him and let him grow.  When it was time for him to go out into the world, i let him go.  YOU were supposed to keep me informed if anything happened.

I did!!! I told you he died. You never asked about him, so i figured you didn't care.
