Or perhaps I got away with it because I utilized the tools I have been gifted. Charm can get you pretty damn far in life. You can get anything if you act like it belongs to you, or get in anywhere if you act like you’re supposed to be there.
They knew I could pull this off. And I did. Awkward maybe, but I fucking did it.
And also I trusted Noah that he wouldn’t fuck me over in the long run. That’s what this is all about right? He trusted me that I wouldn’t go too far, and I trusted him that they wouldn’t push me too far.

The sapling shit had me dying.
“Maybe if you just want to get a sapling and you can bring it back…?”
-“Oh I can bring you a sapling back”
“Uh okay, yea sure”

@thebuz I am glad that you were able to explain things to your friend/landlord.
I think this may come to serve as an advisory tale of sorts. Power and making dominant decisions can be exhilarating and terrifying and amazing, but at what cost? Even worse, what happens when that feeling fades and we commit further acts that intensify that feeling again?
Just something to think about…August 4, 2017 at 4:28 pm #21325Buz WallickModerator
All I can say is that I trusted the situation would end in my favor.
That being said, Noah is going to be buying me a drink in the future.August 4, 2017 at 4:30 pm #21326TiffanyParticipant
True respect to @thebuz for pulling that off so well. While it was less emotionally stimulating than some of the other tasks (which I can appreciate for their rarity) I think it’s challenging to find something that’s this nerve-racking for you 😛August 4, 2017 at 4:32 pm #21327Hannah SchenckParticipant
@kevin Sure he feels weird about it, but he also said it was exhilarating… So we will see which feeling he holds onto more to determine whether he continues to take what is is his or notAugust 4, 2017 at 4:33 pm #21328Robert FullerParticipant
The lesson seems obvious: if you want something, take it. It’s just a literal representation of everything The System teaches.August 4, 2017 at 4:46 pm #21329Lawrence MeyersParticipant
Here’s the thing — a guy who shakes a martini that way does not deserve to have any plants.
And CERTAINLY not any succulents.
In other news, the city attorney has just issued an arrest warrant for Buz for petty theft.August 4, 2017 at 4:49 pm #21330Robert FullerParticipant
At least it’s shaken, not stirred.August 4, 2017 at 5:37 pm #21331superstarParticipant
Technically, there is absolutely no need to shake a martini. Only drinks containing syrups and/or juices (ingredients which require agitation to be thoroughly incorporated) should be shaken.August 4, 2017 at 6:45 pm #21348JackieParticipant
Hm. Interesting .August 4, 2017 at 8:57 pm #21355CassandraParticipant
You are brave, Buz! Glad you got to give the plant back and fix things with your landlord. I’m sure he understands now that you’ve explained it to him.August 4, 2017 at 10:03 pm #21358VioletParticipant
I laughed so hard at the cringeworthiness!!! good on ya, Buz. I’m glad you got to give the plant back, though.
