My son Tony sent me a lovely bouquet of flowers for my birthday at the end of April (I’m a little late on this post obviously). This is what he gave me last year as well. He is very consistent! But then he comes by it naturally – I’m a pretty ritualistic person myself. Notice how I came up with practically the same title.
Nekoka and Sassafrass love the flowers. I like them well enough, but I don’t understand why he gives me flowers. I mean he lived with me twenty-some years. Did he ever see me go, “wow I love flowers!” I don’t mean to sound petty or ungrateful. I’m just confused at how he makes these choices.
If it is just the whole last minute shopping thing, where getting it delivered on the preferred day is paramount, there are other options besides flowers. There are all sorts of gift baskets you can get delivered on call. Like fruit baskets which are edible! Flowers smell good and look pretty but you definitely cannot eat them especially if you are a cat.
Since I’m pretty sure Tony never reads my blog I can say this – dude! Fruit not flowers for gosh sakes! I love you but your taste in birthday presents for your Mom could use some improvement. And – oh yeah – Mother’s day is coming up.
