Roses Speak Louder Than Words

I have to get the carpenters to work on it, quickly.  I think I may have made a hole which shot straight off the roof when I leapt for joy a couple of hours ago.  Can’t you tell? I am simply joyous beyond words.  Happy doesn’t nearly describe how I feel right now.   I don’t want to sound cheesy and all, but yes, I am a giddy schoolgirl-fresh-from-prom-night reincarnate.

Three red roses found their way to my doorstep today.  I was surprised, to say the least… make that pleasantly surprised.  Mr. Significant Other (SO) turns out to have a romantic bone in his body, who would’ve known?  We are miles away from each other, and I just find it utterly sweet of him to have come up with the idea of sending me roses.

This is the first time in my entire life that anyone has given me roses.  Seriously.  I couldn’t even begin to describe all the various involuntary bodily responses which overcame me as I gingerly received that box of roses from the delivery man.  I felt a wave of unidentifiable emotions come over me.  As Christopher Cross oh so melodiously puts it, I was swept away.

I can just stare at them flowers all day…

  9. That must have been a wonderful moment. Getting flowers does make a heart swell.

  10. Sweet. I must admit, I love getting flowers,! I don’t believe for a minute the people who say they don’t like getting them, or they are a waste of money. It’s not the flowers that matter, it is the sentiment. Someone took time out of their day and wanted to show you how much you mean to them. That’s the part I love best. Could be a dozen or one, either way love it everytime. Glad you got flowers, every girl deserves them:-)

  11. very sweet… wish you happiness! :D

    AWW!! That is TOO sweet, Pepper! =) I’ve never been especially fond of flowers (probably because I don’t have a good sense of smell), but I was also swept away when my partner brought home a rose for me one day, out of the blue! =) I can completely imagine how you felt! =)

  13. Kilig to the bones naman nyan! I’m so happy for you, Pepper! Is he the ONE?

  14. Wow! Nakakakilig naman. Ask ko lang if how many roses do you prefer to receive? one? two? or three? or other? hehe :)

  15. uyyyyyyyyy! :-D I am not surprised. And I am so happy for you! :-)
