I feel like a proud mother

I’ll never be a mother. Today I went outside to do something (my business) and I noticed that my saguaro is starting to grow an arm. We got this cactus 11 years ago and it was around six foot (2m) high. It’s about three times that now.

  4. Well you call it an arm but it looks like a hickey maybe you are having a hickey.
    You better start knitting some arm covers for the hickey.
