Hail Jojoba!

I was looking at my bottle of shampoo and saw that it contained Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba). It reminded me of my days working in Yuma AZ. While driving around the desert with my boss he told me to stop near this big bunch of vegetation. It was only after we got out of the vehicle did I notice that the shrubs were all in a row. He told me it was an old jojoba farm. It was a desert plant and they cultivated it for the beans from which they extracted the oil/wax to make products like shampoo. The venture failed but the plants happily lived on. He then asked me if I saw the plants. I said "of course." He asked me again very seriously if I really saw the plants. I looked at him in a puzzled way and repeated, "Yes. I see them." He smiled and said, "Good. You are now a jojoba witness."
