As my cart fiiled up, I began to realize I'd need a new planter and considered my choices--terra cotta pots, glazed pots, and plastic window boxes. I found some rectangular planters that looked interesting. They were about six feet off the ground on a wire shelf. I didn't want to trouble the clerk so I put my toes on the lowest shelf and stretched as tall as I could, reaching the highest edge of the stack with the tips of my fingers. Now I just had to lean the pile toward me and slip the top one off....WHOOSH! At least a gallon of melted snow-water that was trapped in the lip of the planters hit me full in the face! I gasped, unable to speak. My hair was drenched and plastered to my head. My sweatshirt was soaked through to my skin. Victoria burst into gales of laughter.
I got a discount on the planter.
