Jackie, my sister who blogs, and Caryl, my sister who doesn’t blog, are a great comedy team.Â Fun to watch, but somewhat difficult to interact with. Picture me watching this conversation like a tennis match ….
Jackie:Â Caryl, you’re over-watering.Â Everywhere I dug in the garden, the holes filled up with water.
Caryl: I only water for a half an hour every day.
Jackie:Â That’s too much.Â Turn off two days and only water every third day.
Caryl: you fix it.Â Make it water for 15 minutes every day.
Jackie: to get strong roots you need to water deep, but not too often.Â Turn off two days and only water every third day.
Caryl:Â Okay.Â You can program the timer.Â But I still need it to water for 15 minutes every day in my flower garden, so don’t change number 5.
Jackie: Okay, don’t change number 5 and everything else is every third day.
Caryl: number five has to run every day.
Jackie: yes.Â And everything else?
Caryl: fifteen minutes every day.
Jackie: you want me to go program all the sprinklers for fifteen minutes every day except number 5?
Jackie:Â Okay.Â What do you want?
Caryl:Â I want everything programmed for 15 minutes every day, except number five.
I cracked up laughing.
Jackie (to me):Â It’s okay.Â We do this all the time. We’ll get it sorted out.
Me: Just go program the sprinklers however you think is best.
Jackie said:Â I should, then she can just yell at me when she doesn’t like it.
Caryl:Â Yes.Â Do that and I will yell at you later to fix it right.
Jackie:Â Okay.Â Fifteen minutes every day, except number five?
Caryl:Â No.Â YouÂ said I shouldn’t water every day.
Jackie:Â Okay.Â Then what do you want?
Caryl: fifteen minutes every day, except number five.
Jackie: All righty then! (and she gets up and goes outside.)
