Roses, Chocolates, or a Balloon?
I have a friend who is a florist. This morning I stopped in to say “hello” and she was so busy we couldn’t talk. I know you can guess why she couldn’t talk.
Later at the office I got a surprise….
This afternoon I stopped back by my friend’s business and there was a big difference. The store was practically empty and the workers looked exhausted. I was standing next to the door and a man came in with a worried expression on his face.
“Please, help me,” he said.
Before I could say, “I don’t work here,” he launched into a detailed description of some sort of flower arrangement he was looking for.
After he finished I smiled and told him I couldn’t help him because I didn’t work there and pointed toward my friend the florist.
I’m guessing his girlfriend or wife will get chocolates or a balloon because it isn’t wise to wait until 5 o’clock in the afternoon on Valentine’s Day to order flowers.
