Flash Fiction #182

Valentines

A THORNY PROBLEM

Sure I know what day it is. It’s Thursday.

What else??…. Well, it’s the 14th.

Annnd…. What? Valentine’s Day??! Damn! How can it be Valentine’s Day already? I just paid off the Christmas bills.

A Rose by any other name, is going to be a little prickly, if I don’t get her something. I’ll bet the chocolates and flowers are all sold out by the time I get off work. What to do??

Wait! That pretentious boutique in the mall has glass roses. A half dozen of them aren’t much more expensive than six real ones.

“Love ya, Honeybun!”

(Saved!)

    Time flies when you are having fun? Maybe, and maybe not. Glass roses last until they are shattered.

    But then he’ll have to look at his shame for years to come. Unless they get broken.

  5. Quick thinking. They’ll also last longer than real flowers.
