Sapling January 27, 2014
A recent chat:
Coworker: just heard chatter about how people just found out that you can get maple syrup from saplings and it might yield up to 8 times as much maple syrup, so the price might be coming down.
Me: (A minute later) ahh, baby tree
Coworker: i'm trying to think of alternate interpretations of what sapling could mean, becuase i'm sure the visual image of getting maple syrup from it would be amsuing, I'm sure.
Me: i was thinking that it could be some kind of animal, like a squirrel, and you squeeze it and out pours maple syrup
We had a side chat going on about how this is significant, and why it would matter to him in a personal finance sense, like he buys so much maple syrup that it would be significant :)
