I'm a sad being...or so it seems. Sometimes, I want flowers. I want flowers to be delivered with a cute little note. The reasoning? Well...just a "thinking of you" type thing. I don't know, I just think that would be grand. So, the thought as crossed my mind...many of time to buy and send flowers to myself with some adoring note. Here comes the problem...what the hell does one say one one's own note? Hmm... "wish you were here"..Hell no. Um..."Loving you always"...untrue. Um..."thinking of you."...well...kind of...but damn...that sucks. "To Brighten your day." Oh...that's kind of good. It would work I suppose. Flowers are expensive. I think the cheapest bouquet I found that you can get delivered is 29.95 or something...and that isn't including delivery. I was looking at this link: http://www.proflowers.com/freevase/index.cfm?REF=FGVMSNHotmailHome_ThkRoseFlash04Final
The Thanksgiving bouquet is gorgeous. I really want the flowers for the symbol or uplifting nature than for the flowers themselves. Yeah, it's the whole, "you were important enough to have these for no particular reason". It's a sexy thing.
Oh, and the thought crossed my mind to offer to buy Coo flowers and have them delivered to her. And in exchange, ask her if she'd buy me flowers. Then we wouldn't exactly be buying them for ourselves...and it would make us look cool. NO wait...not cool...what's the word I'm looking for...oh yeah, sad. That's a good word.
The only flowers I had delivered to me was by Coo's Stepbrother Jon. He paid and sent for them with one of his first paychecks. It was for my graduation. He caught me totally by surprise. Beyond that, I knew that boy didn't have any money. He had just started working. He never had enough food and his clothing was always in poor shape. He was such a nice guy. Now...I don't know. I'm assuming he still is...but apparently he's changed a lot and a lot of things his life are different now...and you never know. I haven't seen him in quite a bit.
I kind of got off subject. Getting flowers delivered is exciting. I wonder what happens if you're not home when they deliver. Do they leave them on the doorstep? Do they come back later? Do they have to come back the next day? If they come back the next day, do they have to replace the flowers? Do you have to pay to have the flowers to replaced? Do they suck like the post office and leave one of those stupid, "We tried to deliver, you were unavailable, please call to arrange pickup for your item?" Or maybe one of those cards that says, "1st attempt, next scheduled delivered 3 years from now?" I hate all those cards. I'd like to read a card that says, "Sorry we missed you. We suck. Please call us and tell us a good time to come and we'll be here. Promised and guaranteed. Have a lovely day." That would be wonderful.
I have a problem with both UPS and the Post Office, because they just come whenever. They often keep coming at the same time...even though you were't there the at that time when they came before. It's retarded. Oh, they might tell you that they will deliver around a certain time, so you make sure you're there. But, they don't come...and then you have to leave for work...and you have another stupid card on your door saying they missed you and will try to deliver one more time. Needless to say, if they won't leave the package, they won't let you arrange a time for it to be delivered. So, they waste their time trying to deliver it at times you know you won't be around. Idiots. Then...you get your last notice and have to track it down. You then find...for some reason...it is at the post office or UPS office at the other side of town. Why? Well...to be more inconvenient of course. This is especially meant as a "screw you"...when such a office exists just across the street or nearby on your side of town. Damn it. So, you have to get directions to get there and it takes more time...oh...and you get lost. Woo. This has been my experience. Please...just leave my mail and packages. Thank you.
Sorry...had to go off on that little rant. Those offices piss me off. Grr..they are evil.
Anyway, flowers are lovely and can mean sexy things. After Christmas, when I might actually have a little money...might have to send some flowers to Coo or myself. That would rock. :)
I'm fairly certain I'm supposed to be doing something. I get distracted easily.
