My friend was asking me what my favorite flowers are and it was then that I realized that I didn’t know, nobody had asked me before. Maybe it was because nobody had sent me flowers, or that I really don’t like flowers in the first place. Still, I see it as the duty to my sex to have an opinion on the matter, so I started going down the list:
…roses…to common and flashy
…tulips…too closed-up, like they are hiding something
…POPPIES!..oh wait, those are illegal, not so socially acceptable…
Then it hit me…SUNFLOWERS.
They are big, and plain. Perfect for me, they make a statement, and you don’t need a lot of them to be pleased, one will do. They are the “awkward girl next door” of flowers, just like me. And I am totally cool with that.
My friend thinks that’s dumb, but she likes daisies. Me, I like sunflowers.
