“Tina” (aka crystal meth, aka “ice,” aka “crushing paranoia and pain powder”) has been making a huge comeback in New York lately—and not just with its usual audience of glitter-faced club-kid homosexual people. Why, just last month a vice president at one of the largest banks in Manhattan was busted in his uptown apartment with a very uptown meth lab. Whoops!
Too bad he didn’t call me before the cops came to bust him. Being as crafty as I am, I would only have needed an hour or two to turn his meth lab into a life-enhancing crafts project. Then he could have a new addiction… Terrariums! Fun for all, much more relaxing than meth, and a bit less pricey. And terrariums, once created, are self-sufficient ecosystems. Generally, with just a little TLC at the start, they’ll last a love-time!
Here’s how to go from meth lab to terrarium in seven easy steps.
