A little bit of sensitivity

Published October 4, 2012

A while back, my parents introduced me to the Mimosa pudica, otherwise known as the Sensitive Plant (or my new favourite name Touch-Me-Not). It’s a cute little plant that looks perfectly normal until you touch it, when it all curls up on itself like a hedgehog. I thought it was quite cruel to prod and poke at it, but it recovers in about ten minutes and then it’s hard to resist doing it again.

Thankfully, I was not granted custody of the plant in question because I can’t take care of normal vegetation, let alone anything of a sensitive disposition.
