And in honor of her birthday, I gave her some red and purple jewelry and a bouquet. A bouquet I constructed in order to save money that ended up looking like a 2nd grader put it together rather than buy a ready-made bouquet that looks beautiful. Gad, I'm so cheap. And untalented. Observe.
Notice the lack of symmetry and how the roses are NOT the focus of the bouquet. Yeah. Royally screwed-up there.
You can really see how
Guy: Hey! I'd like to order an arrangement for my grandmother!
Me: Sure! Do you want matching or mis-matched flowers?
Guy: Mis-matched and I want the flowers cut too short for the vase. Basically, just cut the tops off and throw them in the water.
Me: So, basically, you want it to look like a toddler just lopped the tops off the flowers in the back yard and stuck 'em in a bowl of water?
Guy: Yep! That'll do it!
Woman: Hi! I'd like to order an arrangment?
Me: No problem! What is your preference?
Woman: I want the flowers to match, but I want them all cut at different lengths, just sort of shoved into the vase, with no rhyme or reason to it.
Me: Sounds good, hon! That's our specialty!
Happy Birthday, Mom! Nothing is more divine than to be 69!
