I Love Him But He Has To Go

19 Oct

This was my Love Potato when the Hub first left him for me:

This is him now:

I took the decision to throw him into the food recycling bin last week, but he’s still sitting on my kitchen counter.

I love my little Love Potato; how can I possibly toss him aside?

    Don’t you get vodka from potatoes? I know that it’s a process, you can’t just wait until the potato kindly leaks out vodka. Your love potato looks like it’s in reproductive mode with all the roots it’s producing so it is an actual “love” potato, trying to make baby potatoes. 🙂

    Following on from Laurie’s comment, why not plant him, arrange a ceremonial heart in pebbles around where you’ve planted him, and reap the harvest of spuds (!) in a month or two? Otherwise, he will start to smell a bit!

    PS keep the face!

    I think you should give him a new home out in the garden … let him grow in peace.

    Well, he melted away quite fast.

    You are weird (I love weird!)

    LOL Till! You know, it would be a GREAT Christmas decoration/centerpiece for all the Martha=Stewart decorate-y types!!

    I was going to suggest you plant him. Cut him into bits so each bit has an eye and you will get lots of little potato plants. If you have no garden space, plant him in a pot or potato sack. You can get these growing sacks at your local nursery. Dianne

    You pick him up, open the bin, and drop him in — he has further duties to perform!

    Don’t throw your love away! Plant him in a pot in your backyard. Water him with love and perhaps your love will grow and next year you will have little love spuds you can eat. Then they will be a part of you. What you don’t eat can be replanted next year and your love will be with you always.

    That may have come across slightly weirder than intended… No. I intended it to be weird. But then they do say truth is weirder than fiction.

    Isn’t your Love Potato getting awfully stinky?

    Hmm…you could have used him as a seed potato and watched love grow. 🙂

    At least you have the photos to remember him by. Maybe Hub will duplicate him for you.

    Try planting your love potato and then you will have a Love Garden!

    Chuck out the bits that are old and decrepit and keep the bits that have survived. Old face and limbs on a new body as it were


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
