David S. Atkinson: Reanimator!

I am Jesus! My neighbors ended up with an extra plant. Despite us being horticulturally challenged, my wife decided to accept the plant from them. She put it in a pot on our porch. As I predicted, we forgot to water it and it died.

She swears she watered it before she went away for a bit. I’m thinking that wasn’t very often. Regardless, we forgot to mention watering the plant to our cat sitter and then I forgot to water it (this had never been put on my list of duties for while my wife was out of town, but was probably implied) for a few days on my return. It was a desiccated husk by the time I noticed.

So I said to the plant: Lazarus, emerge from your tomb. Look what happened!


Actually, I told my wife I’d try watering it. I watered it for about a week and the above happened.

Still, it came back to life. Clearly, I must be Jesus.
