Plant was in the back seat, nestled between the backseat and the front armrest.
I don’t have functioning AC, so I drive with the windows rolled down.
But as I picked up speed on the freeway, reaching 60mph, little flecks of dirt were flying around the car, hitting me in the face and covering my skin & clothes.
Me: “What the hell’s going on? Is this a tornado?”
No, you dummy. It’s the soil from your plant.
Me: “I’ve got plant all over me!”
Lesson learned. Next time it’s going in the trunk. Either that or I fix my AC. Toss up.
