I once had a flower that did not grow.
I watered it and fed it once a day, but it would not grow.
I made a bet with it!  I said, “If you grow, I will plant you outside.”
It started to sag as if it were saying, “No”.
I sang it songs,
played it songs on the piano, but it would not grow.
I put it in the sunlight.
Still nothing happened.
Then at that moment, I realized something.  IT WAS LONELY!
I bought another plant and put it in the sunlight next to my plant.
Then they both started to sway as if they were saying, “YEAH!”
The next day, little buds started to grow.
Both plants were happy and growing.
