    Well, based on the repotting vocabulary heard around this place, make sure there are no young children about when you do it...

    ...More concerned about the pot-tossing vocabulary heard post-fling....

    (At least, if mine is any indication...)

    The lyrics are essentially the same in both cases. It's the rhythm and expression that provide the greater difference.

    Post-fling, you get a loud staccato pulse, followed by several rests, then repeat once or twice.

    Re-repotting, you get a soft continuous stream of growls.

    So far, I've avoided the fling, and most of the vocabulary; it's become a fling-avoidance dance, almost pantomime, where pots, media, tools, anything handy, nearly get tossed, put back down, various nonsensical gesticulations, etc, etc....ocassional mumbled monosyllables, several i'm sorry's to the plant, that kind of thing.

    Fortunately I have very little repotting to do this season. But on Sunday, they all get moved.
