The idea of my sister wanting to have a “Hannukah Bush” in the apartment, somehow came up at Grandma’s dining room table this weekend, amongst family.
To recap from last year, my sister wanted to get some little tree like plant to decorate for the apartment, which I vetoed faster than (insert analogy here).
So when the subject came up at Grandma’s, the table fell almost silent.
I broke the silence by saying that if I saw a tree or bush in the apartment, I’d instantly toss it out the window and or take it downstairs and set it aflame. This was greeted by nods of approval from the Relatives.
My sister though tried to spin this as a fun little decorating idea. But no dice.
It’s one thing for our balcony to be strung in lights (the sister does it, I could care less) or to have “Hannukah lights” wrapped around our Bamboo Plant of Awesomeness. But a tree/bush would cross the proverbial red-line.
