Me: Omigosh! Look at the plant [in the upstairs bathroom]!
Me: It's almost dead!
Me: Didn't you notice? This is the bathroom you use.
Me: I just watered it last week. I guess it's a lot hotter in here than it has been. Why didn't you water it?
SH: I didn't notice.
Me: How can you not notice a huge plant ON THE COUNTER?
SH: I don't pay attention to things like that. It's like when we're at the airport and you say, "Look at the lady with the blue tattoo on her face." I have a mission and I ignore anything that detracts from that mission. People are just shapes to be avoided. I certainly don't pay attention to plants.
Me: OK. Would you do me a favor and water it the next time it looks this droopy?
SH: That's not my job!
Me: Then TELL ME that the plant is NEAR DEATH and I will water it. Sheesh.
