I was walking in the Wholesale Flower District that day.
And I passed by this place where this old Chinese man. .
He sometimes sells me weird and exotic cuttings.
'Cause he knows, you see that, well, strange plants are my hobby.
He didn't have anything unusual there that day.
So I was just about to, you know, walk on by.
When suddenly, and without warning,
There was this. .
(Total eclipse of the Sun).
It got very dark. .
And there was this strange humming sound,
Like something from another world. .
And when the light came back this weird plant
was just sitting there.
Just, you know, stuck in, uh-among the zinias.
I coulda sworn it hadn't been there before.
But the old chinese man sold it to me anyways.
For a dollar-ninety-five.
