On the way she told me she saw them in a magazine and that they were only $20. Damn, 20 bucks? To keep bugs off flowers? Why not just buy new flowers?
Then she said she would really like to buy 3 of them. At $20 a pop? Yikes! How many flowers does she have hidden away?
In my sweetest, softest, most understanding tone of voice I asked, "HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FREAKIN' MIND! DID YOU FORGET TO TELL ME YOU WON THE LOTTERY?"
She gave me "the look". I checked the shine on my shoes and told her I would wait in the car while she went in and bought her flower holder thingy.
Turns out THIS is what she was talking about. And it was "flour", not "flower". She's not very articulate sometimes, you know?
