You know what? You should get a plant. No matter what your living situation is, there's bound to be some little leafy, prickly or viney creature hearty enough to withstand even the least green of thumbs.

It's a win-win: You get the benefits and the plant gets to be amused by all the weird stuff you do around the house when nobody else is watching. Go ahead, grab a leaf mister and refresh yourself with a cool spray of this week's Good Stuff.
