Stop and smell the roses

The other day I was driving to work and I saw this:

Car flowers

(That is supposed to be the back of a car with a bouquet of flowers under the windshield wiper. It’s a poor drawing at best… I’m sorry)

My first reaction was:

flowers sweetest thing

I thought about what it would be like to walk out to your car in the morning, finding that little surprise from your special someone. I dreamed about what it would be like having someone in my life that would buy me flowers and leave them somewhere unsuspecting for me just to brighten my day.

Then it occurred to me that it was 6:30am. That this special someone would have had to buy the flowers the night before and drop them off at an ungodly hour of 5am just to surprise this lucky lady.

Then I wondered what it would be like to have someone that was willing to do all of those (ridiculously wonderful) things. I wondered who exactly would do those sorts of things. I mean, do boyfriends actually do things like this? Call me jaded, but it doesn’t seem like most boyfriends would… Lord knows, I haven’t had any that would do such a thing. And then it hit me:

flowers stalker

Because we all know, that this scenario is far more likely to happen in my world.


  1. I've done this for someone, so yes, it was a stalker. I am not proud of what I did, but love makes a person do some funny things.

  2. Ha ha ha! I loved the M. Knight Shyamalan twist. That would be the most menacing use of flowers possible. You wake up and go to your car for work, then see those flowers. Happiness turns to terror very quickly.
    But let's assume it's not nefarious. People in relationships do these things for each other if they're sweet. It can happen to you too. Or if the guy really screwed up. Those could be "sorry I slapped you in the heat of an argument" flowers too.

  3. stalking isn't love, but it's pretty darn close.

    Hey Heather, the WWW issue seems to be resolved!

  4. Don't worry - I'm sure it would only be a stalker for 2% of the population.

  5. Also, it's a romantic thought, until someone doesn't notice them, tears off like a bat out of hell, and decapitated flower heads fly all over the road.

  6. Nellie - so it wasn't too far fetched for me to assume it!

    Pickleope - I never considered the "I'm sorry I hit you" side of things. That is also disturbing...

    Brian - I know! Thanks so much, you're a genius!!

    Gorm - hey now... (... ... ... that's all I got...)

    Beer - given that it was a first thing in the morning surprise, that scenario is quite likely. It would also happen if the poor girl was freaked out by the stalker. Flowers everywhere.
