“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.”~ Leo Buscaglia
A few years ago, there was an article that talked about how a man had met a woman, and he was attracted in some manner to her and he left this really nasty message on her voice mail about how much of a “great catch” he was and that she was missing out and all of that. It actually serves two purposes: For one, a good laugh. And two, it teaches men how NOT to be around women.
I have broken the mold today in what I have done this morning at the local grocery store while waiting for a ride to return home.
Being that everyone who knows me personally knows that Valentine’s Day can just go ahead and suck on it and die already.
However this morning, I took a different approach.
What I am about to tell you actually did happen, nothing has been changed to protect anyone. Just the hard up truth.
I know that there are going to be millions of people out there like me tomorrow with absolutely NOTHING. And I mean N-O-T-H-I-N-G! ! ! !
So I decided to go over into the floral department where they had their displays of long stemmed single roses out for their Valentine’s Day promotions. I picked up a few of the single roses and paid for them.
Then I went out to the edges of the floral department and with anyone that passed by me, I offered to buy them a rose so that they could say that they had something this year on Valentine’s Day. It didn’t matter if they were young, old, married, single, divorced, widowed, engaged, in a relationship, MALE OR FEMALE… I offered to anyone that went by me.
I am planning on saving some extra money on the side each month so that by next Valentine’s Day, I can offer more than “just a rose” for people. Because I AM the great catch.
Wish me luck. And yes, if you’re in this area next year. I will definitely BUY you some roses for Valentine’s Day.
