Pencil Tree Plant, we have to be together.

I don't care that they say your leafless, I don' t care that they say you need to be in bright light, I can water you less during the winter months... they said that also. I can deal with all of these things baby, it's easy. I just have to think of us together, happy and growing together, and it becomes second nature. It's not like your demanding and difficult, your so not. Your very easy to deal with. Some people think your too skinny, and get freaked out by the slightly caustic sap that drips out when you have been cut. I tell them to stop hating on the thin ones, and to just be careful and not cut you (I mean, why should they be cutting you anyway?)
I have seen you when you were just a small stick figure of a plant, and I fell for you then. I have even seen you when you were like 3' tall, and had a fuller figure, I loved that too baby, all of your looks look good to me. I love the fact that your from Africa and India, though i'm still trying to figure out how you could be from both. One of my friends told me that your not suppose to be good for children and pets, look! Children and pets don't matter to me baby, and if we have them around, I'll keep you out of reach from them. They would only break your amazing green skin, and get causic milk sap in their eyes.... I would laugh for a minute, then tend to them, but I would be thinking of our growing love the whole time. And look, I know your Latin name can sound a bit off putting, but come on, Euphorbia Tirucalli has a pretty ring to it. You should go by that, I always found pencil tree plant to be a bit strange.
I live in Zone 5 here in Chicago, and I know your use to living in Zones 8-11, but I would just keep you inside. If we ever move to a warmer climate I would for sure put you outside... If you wanted that. Point is, I saw you at the cafe today, and I have to let you know one way or another, so why not now? I hope you read this and let me know somehow.
