A/N: I haven't written anything in a long time and I've missed it. Since RL has settled down some I decided to chisel some of the rust off my muse and keyboard and give it a go again. Un-beta'd because the deadline for this is today so please forgive any mistakes.

"The only people more idiotic than cactus grabbers are people who trip over socks."

"I didn't trip, I slipped on them."

"I told you it's designed to store plastic shopping bags – Ow! Seriously, you know those spines are barbed, right?"
