So the very thoughtful boyfriend who enjoys travel goes to Holland. “What do you want?” he asks… (he’s very good about the gifting) I say, “Surprise me, please” and he returns with… A tulip in a can!
Honestly, what could be better?! Of course I don’t think I’ll ever open it, because then I’d run the risk of killing it. I have a black thumb and me+plants typically = death sentence (for the plant of course). But this tulip in a can is perfect because a)The can has stripes which I love and b) It is the idea of the flower that appeals to me most (i.e. Plato’s forms) and therefore c) It fulfills all my cathartic needs.
A definite 10 on the gift rating chart.
Ah… he knows me well.
