I got Bambi down at the corner of happy and healthy. That’s the Walgreens in Covington, Kentucky. I got her at the old location—not the new. I’m figuring I’ve had this bamboo plant for about two years now.
When I first got Bambi, she never grew. She just stayed the same size and looked kind of sickly. I thought that sooner or later she would simply die.
On September 22, 2013—the day after my daughter’s wedding—I quit smoking cigarettes. I switched to an e-cigarette and I’ve never looked back.
Do you know what happened? Bambi suddenly—and I do mean suddenly—started to grow. She has now doubled her size from when I first got her. Even the new growth—the new leaves coming out—are full size. She hasn’t even outgrown her pot yet!
Apparently, Bambi prefers vapor over cigarette smoke. I think I’ve learned a lesson from her.
