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.
