"I just have to go in the flower shop for something," he said. So we went in.
"Can I help you, sir?"
"I'll have ... ummm... a red one, a white one, and a pink one of those," and he pointed towards the cooler where the roses were kept.
The flowers were wrapped and tied up with red and white and pink ribbons, and then right there in the flower shop, he gave me the bouquet.
"These are for you. Red for Christmas, pink for Valentine's Day, and white for Easter," he said.
