A little while ago a flower delivery truck pulled up in front of the house.
A young ( 25 yr old nice looking young man) Knocked on the door while balancing at least 2 dozen roses
arranged in a large vase in one hand and a G I A N T heart shaped box of chocolates in the other !..
I usually get flowers - few times during the year.. BUT not 2 dozen roses !
( I'm thinking -- geeez I'm good !)
I Thanked him closed the door and set the flowers down in the kitchen. Pulled out the
card to read........ BRENDA my Love....
Either My Mr. is in biG BIG B I G trouble OR there's been a mistake.
I ran outside just as the deliver guy was getting out of his truck with a ' painED' look on
his face.. he opened up the back of the delivery van and together we searched the
other beautiful arrangements, finding the one that had no card I replaced the card with
the one I held in my hand into a vase holding ONE dozen roses.. ( are these mine?)
The guy then went to the other side of the van.. " Here it is" .. his face again looking like
he'd lost his best friend !... I looked up and he was holding a small short vase.
Lillies and 3 roses !.. "I'm sooo sorry, and I need the box of chocolates back too, if I had
another I'd let you keep them"... :redface:
I ran back in the house and fetched the chocolates & a soda for the delivery guy.
"where's your helper ?" I asked him. "I just dropped her off at home she got sick,
I'm on my own" he said then apologized again, thanked me for the soda and hurried off !
For a few seconds I was a Queen !..
My flowers are beautiful, and Mr. is very thoughtful
and not in trouble.
Ahhh Mr Donna! Although we never do things like flowers etc its been a kinda lovey dovey day with plenty of laughs. Like he tried to send me an e card but it ended up going to his email. Then 'I've got you a pressie but its not come yet'. Probably free choccies, never mind, I've given them up for lent. Bless them all, its the laughs that keep us glued together. :hug: Thanks for sharing.
heehee, well at least you got something! I wonder what he would have said if they hadn't noticed and that was not what he ordered.. lol.
Mr Donna, my own hubby will tell you what a horribly jinxed and frightful holiday Valentine's Day is. Ya did good with the flowers, honest! :hug:
What a sweet story, and Bravo for you not being bitterly dissappointed or angry at your own true love. Life has it ways...you will be repaid for your kindness to the young man, yes we know you weren't kind to get repaid, but that's not your call, What will be will be....you watch, it will happen, and for loving your own honey? Well that will happen too.
Aww - nice story, Donna!
What a sweet story, and I'll bet that young man thinks of you every Valentines day from now on LOL!
Lovely story, Donna! :crackup: :crackup: I would have loved to be a fly on the wall!!!!!!!!!!!
