Today’s flowers were still fresh a few days ago. I received them from my manager last week for organising our annual team dinner and not being able to attend due to my tooth surgery.
Although I don’t want to be negative about this, the fact that I’ve been working in the same department for about a decade and have never received flowers before automatically popped into my mind. I guess telling you that would probably indicate that it does bother me, but I can assure you it doesn’t really – it’s just that this was such a lovely surprise.
And there’s a funny story to go with this bouquet, too, that I’m not supposed to know about. Apparently my manager went to the flower shop in his village and said he needed a bouquet. The florist went straight for the red roses – guess that’s what his wife usually gets – but he realised it in time and said “No, no! They’re for my assistant…” 🙂
I was about to chuck these flowers out yesterday afternoon (they held for almost two weeks!), then decided to disassemble the lot and take pictures.
Happy Friday everyone, and have a great weekend!
