Send Me No Flowers

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

The flower- bouquets sat on the kitchen table.

I walked out of the kitchen and carefully closed the door.


Was he trying to kill me? My heart said – NO! My brain intervened – you hardly know him! Is it for my life-insurance?

I phoned him.


Glad you called. Did you like the flowers?

You mad man. Are you trying to kill me? You know I am severely allergic to many flowers.

Calm down. These are safe and allergen-free.

How demeaning!   You gave me plastic flowers.

These are real, dried and sanitized flowers!

OH! Thank you! ILU.

  1. He cares enough to know to send the very best: Dried and sanitized flowers. I wonder if your main character is named Jennifer, cause it reminds me of a good friend of mine who has issues with perfume. Well done!

  2. I guess people with severe allergies are allowed to be a bit paranoid, they suffer enough. Maybe when she sees him next she actually gets an ‘I’m sorry for the grump’ out. Lovely story.

  3. Hey, I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the versatile blogger award because I enjoy all of your posts and love reading your short fiction! Best wishes! Keep up the wonderful work!

    • Thank you so much.
      Appreciate your nomination and am glad you enjoy my posts – that in itself is lot of satisfaction.

      Sorry to disappoint you … but I do not complete the formalities of awards as I feel they are there to encourage younger and much more talented people writing on this site. Thanks, once again. 🙂

I love arguments
