I think its best to start with the ugly part and then soften you up at the end of the post. So here is the ugly
Now its time for the beautiful part. Tonight I had to go to the florist to send a plant to a sick relative. There was an old guy in front of me. Well, you know I am chatty so of course I started talking to him. I guess I have a thing for old guys. Not in a Anna Nicole Smith kind of way - I just think they are adorable. Lol
Anyway, he was buying red roses. And he was being very careful to ensure he had some greenery and baby breath to make sure they looked extra pretty. I thought it was so cute the attention he was paying to selecting the best flowers. So I started to tease him and ask him if he was "in trouble". He had a great laugh and said he was much to old to get into trouble.
I was noticing the florist was making 2 bundles, one with a dozen and another with only 6 roses. He then pointed to the dozen and said his wife was in the hospital and he was taking them to her. Awwww, how sweet is that!! Then with a very straight face he pointed to the smaller bundle and said those were for his girlfriend! OMG.....I tried not to react too much but I am pretty sure that my mouth flew open and so did the florist.
Then the charming old bugger grinned and told us his wife had a room-mate in the hospital who didn't get alot of visitors so he was giving her the smaller bundle.
AWWWWWW, isn't that the sweetest thing?? I was so touched that he would be so thoughtful. I think the florist and I both wanted to give him a hug. He certainly did warm this old, cold, snowy heart today.
