“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.

    Now that was quite the lovely gesture Joel. Because of all the commercialism I don’t believe in celebrating days like that. My hubby of 29 years says he is very lucky. 😆
    Great post and wishing you the best of luck for next year. 😀

    How sweet you are! Hate the day or not, that probably made those people feel so special. You created those wonderful feelings in others and that makes you kind of like cupid. 😀 Wonderful idea…I might do that next year too.
