Did you know that mint likes water? I sure didn’t. Here are all the things I tried doing to cure my various mint leafs before finally learning about this H2O remedy.
1. I lit the mint on fire. With a torch. Where did I get a torch, you ask? That’s not important. The important thing to know is that the mint caught on fire instantly and quickly turned to ash. Mint is very flammable. I believe that is how the fireman worded it once the inferno was under control. Have you ever attempted to make a mojito using mint ash? It tastes as ashy as you would guess.
2. I prayed for the well-being of the mint. The mint withered away. God is dead.
3. I injected a syringe full of adrenaline straight into the stem. Nothing happened. Nothing at all. I was hoping that the mint would immediately spring back into life. Or at least it would explode. Something exciting. Nope. Nothing.
4. I put a leech on the mint leaf to suck out the sickness. No medical recovery occurred, but the leech did look quite pleased. I like to think that he enjoyed the minty flavor. Maybe they prefer mint to blood. Most leeches just haven’t discovered their love for mint yet.
5. I took the mint to the vet. My local veterinarian explained to me that mint is not animal. Mint is plant. You learn something new every day.
