Flowers for Myself
I love fresh flowers. Most women do. Unfortunately, most men think flowers are a waste of a gift because they know the flowers are going to die soon. Here's what, though, men: If you get your wives and girlfriends flowers for no reason, they will love you and love you. Don't believe me? Try it.*
At any rate, I love flowers. All kinds of flowers. If I had the money, I'd have a fresh bouquet of flowers in every room of the house!
I recently decided that I'm going to budget for at least one bouquet every couple of weeks. I figure that if I spend about 15 bucks on a fresh bouquet every other week, that'll cost around $375 a year. It's really not that much. A lot of people probably waste that much money on produce going bad. Or on eating out. Or just buying junk on sale at Target. Fresh flowers, though -- I can always count on those to make me happy. Every time I see them in my kitchen, it puts a smile on my face.**
*Incidentally, I've only gotten flowers from a man twice in my life: once from a boyfriend who I guess listened when I said I liked them (how nice!) and once from a boyfriend who was about to give me bad news (lame).
**If, for some reason, you feel the need to get me a gift but have absolutely no idea what to get, then just get flowers. I'll love you forever.
