today Tan brought in a baggy of herb for me. no, not the smokeable kind. something more along the lines of the fragrant kind. but i suppose the smokeable kind is also quite fragrant in a pungent skunk-like way. he and his girlfriend, Alaina, have been growing various herbs in their mini garden. today he thoughtfully brought a bag in for me. basil, mint, rosemary and thyme. oh! and a lime from their tree too! thanks guys, that was a loverly surprise!
