On a shelf in an apartment: a cactus, a sunflower and a pea plant. A woman pours some water on the cactus and leaves the house.
A cactus: I really don’t know what’s wrong with people. I really don’t get it.
A sunflower: What’s going on again now.
A cactus: She gave me water again. Again!Why she does it?!
A sunflower: When? I haven’t even seen her coming today!
A cactus: Of course you don’t! Every time there is that burning sunshine outside the window you are all just into it. You weirdo!No surprise that you haven’t see her.
A sunflower: Oh stop whining. And be grateful that someone is taking care of you. No offense but you are not the most attractive plant in the planet with those thorns.
A cactus: Excuse me? What?What am I hearing now? That’s absolutely non sense. There is no plant more desired by human beings than us, Cactaceae. Every apartment with a decedent standard as a cactus plant on a shelf!
A sunflower (resting on a warm window): Oh is it?
A cactus: Well, yes!You sunflowers, you are seeds for porridge my darling. Nobody really cares about you moving around the sunshine, like weirdos. If they wanted something that could move they would have had a dog or a cat. So stop even making an effort about it!
A sunflower: I kind of sense a sort of envy here. You cannot move and nobody will come even next to you to smell your sent.
A cactus: Well, she comes everyday giving me water so, no you are wrong!I would like to be just by my own, but they always come next to me. Do you get it? Thorns slash Stay away from me? I don’t want to look nice and beautiful for them. I just want to get fat and fat and get more thorns!
A pea plant: Stop shouting please. My beans are trying to sleep here. And if you could control your swearing that would have been much more than appreciate it.
A cactus: Oh there we go, here she is. Sorry but this is a public space. I get water in the face when I don’t want that, he can swear and act like a weirdo and you unfortunately you have to take it.
A pea plant: I am not going to accept that. These beans will be dinner very soon for our owner. They need a good sleep. I want them to be juicy and tasty.
A sunflower: Well, we don’t why this should make a difference. Because we are not going to stay in silence in this boring place.
A pea plant: Sure! Talking is all you can do, you lazy roots, just doing nothing and photosynthesis, while I am food for them and this is a full time job.
A sunflower: I am in the most delicious porridge on earth and also in oil, excuses me. And if sometimes I enjoy some photosynthesis is not your business at all!
A cactus: Well, There is no plant more desired by human beings than us, Cactaceae. Every apartment…
A sunflower interrupting: Oh, again with this boring chant.
A pea plant: I always thought that only moss could be the most boring plant ever, always showing off about directions, the North and the South, and the North and the South, before I had to listen to this green hedgehog!
A sunflower: Ah!Nice one!
The plant of peas suddenly shakes. Little peas wake up and start crying.
A little pea referring to the cactus: mum, am I going to get bigger like him when I get older? I want to get bigger like him!
Another little pea: I want those thorns, I want those thorns mum!
The cactus (getting bigger and emotionally satisfied) : See? All they can notice is me!Your little peas are very smart. I never thought peas had a brain.
A woman enters in the room, plucks all the peas and put them in a dish and start cooking. Than she puts the sunflower in a vase at the table.
Morality: Once you have proved that you are right and everybody should finally agree with you, well it is time for lunch.
