Weirdos at the hydroponics store
Most of you know I'm working on a grafting project. I haven't been able to find grafting tape locally, and so I'd been cutting strips of packaging tape and using them backwards, and having little success. In fact 0 success out of two attempts. So I decided to get some of the tools that would be used by someone who does this as more than a hobby... I built a healing chamber, and decided to bite the bullet so to speak, and buy some grafting tape.
Having driven to every place within 20 miles (that I knew of) and upon striking out, I was talking to a cousin with a checkered past, who suggested I tried the hydroponics store... I didn't know of any h.P. store, so I got directions, and discovered its in kind of a seedy (bad pun sorry) on the out skirts of town. I arrived there today, and was immediately greeted by an un-washed, surely lice-ridden hippy type, who was stocking box after box of something called canaba-coco. She said they didn't have any in the store, but could order that, and offered to call. I said sure, and started to walk around the store, only to discover they carried a seemingly full range of canaba branded products. Having been a goody two shoes all my life, growing up in church, I was well out of my element. Just as I was thinking of leaving, smelly hippy-girl came over and said "good news, I'll have some in tomorrow, they are including some along with my bale of, well never mind, but its coming. Is 2 dollars a good price? Sure said I. I'd pay that. To which she replied, well it might be more like 3$. Annoyed, I said, well I guess if that's what it must be. TO which she replied, i meant 5$, yes 5$ is probably what it will cost. I told her I'd only pay three, and then left. We shall see what the actually price is tomorrow.
If I don't decide to buy some online in the mean time.
