Maybe next time

Ring, ring.


"Rees, it's Lynn. Are you coming into the office today?"

"Um, yeah. I'll be in later to make photocopies of the tasting notes for tonight at the Wine Cellar."

"Good. We've got something here for you!"

"What is it?"

"It's a surprise!"

Curiosity peaked, I walked in two hours later. Sitting near my mailbox was a huge bouquet of flowers. HUGE. My heart started racing as I reached for the card.

"Best wishes for a great 2007. Love, Mom and Mom's Husband"

My heart briefly sank before perking up again. How sweet of them! I'm so lucky to have such great parents. That was really nice of them to randomly send flowers to my office.

"So???" Everyone in the lobby asked. "Who are they from?"

"Aw, they're from my mom and her husband! Isn't that sweet of them?"

"Oh yes!" chorused all around.

Later on as I carried them out to my car, my boss held the door open for me.

"We were hoping they were from a guy."

"Me too," I muttered as I walked towards my car, one certain guy in mind...

Dude, I can totally relate. My dad sends me flowers sometimes for my birthday and I'm always just a smidge disappoined. Then I feel like a terrible person for being disappointed that someone sent me lovely flowers.
