Word of the Day Challenge: Picking
my former boyfriend gave me some flowers for Valentines Day.
I thought they were for me.
Until I looked at the card and realized they had been delivered to the wrong house.
I thought they had been delivered to the wrong house because it wasn’t my name on the card.
Then I saw his name was the ‘love from’ and realized he had sent flowers to another woman and put my address down instead of hers.
So here’s what I did.
I put them in the hallway near the front door.
He came over later that day and saw them there and I dared him.
Just dared him to say one word.
He didn’t of course.
I know he wanted to say something
because let me tell you he spared no expense on the arrangement.
It must have cost him a few pretty pennies.
It was awesome, he had to walk by them when he came over.
Which of course he only did a few more times- and then he started to come in through the side door.
Eventually they dried up and died.
Pick your battles and pick your battle lines.
and always, always, always
have a victory dance planned.
