Well, thank you, Doc Spock! Your logic is, as always, superiorly amok in a way that's a bit hard to place my finger on.
This birthday is pretty "real", or at least it was to my mother some not too many years ago but really quite a few many years ago, so I'm not sure what you're thinking of in April. Although I must say all that hinting and foreshadowing is making me quite nervous!
Hoa, I'm not fishing for a present. I was last year, LOL! And it's funny you mention the prego seed pod. Just to see someone else refer to a plant named after my grandmother - to see you use her name - is present enough. That we can recreate a lost plant that bears her name means so much to me. It affirms all those ways in which she touched my life, and brings back so many memories! If I haven't mentioned it, I dedicated my book to her. Thanks for that, as well!
I'm rich with the gift of good friends - who needs presents!
PS - Go easy on the emoticons, or you'll have one hell of an electric bill!
