Requests From a Floral Girl

Yesterday at work was quiet…annoyingly so.  Between the dreary weather and the slow day I was in a snarky mood.  I did however come up with a few requests I have of the world.
First, if you call a floral shop last minute wanting an order to be sent to a funeral, and we’re taking the orders to the funeral home in 10 minutes, please don’t be disappointed when the only thing we can send is a plant. 
Second, if you’re a customer looking to use our restroom, you do so, your ass explodes in there and I’m working RIGHT outside the door, a warning would be nice.  A “sorry about that,” or a simple “run!” would be great.  Thank you.
I also discovered that if I have too much coffee in the afternoon, I tend to resemble a Parkinson’s patient having a seizure…which also makes for increased difficulties making bows.  I guess I’ll tack that down as Life Lesson #141. 
In other news, Hubby and I watched the movie “The Guardian” last night.  If you have not seen it, it’s worth it to do so!  What a great flick & it’s even a guy flick!  –That’s impressive coming from me.
And finally, since the nearest Olive Garden around us is 100 miles away and the last time I was there was 2004, Hubby and I have found a couple of recipes to try and copy their Minestrone Soup and Salad.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  I thought it’s at least a try….wish us luck!

Meat Flavored Gelatin

Well, the good news is that the remote is FOUND!!  Thank God!!  It was in the couch after all….figures. 
The bad news is it was a long day at work filled with a lot of characters.  Yeah. 
We have a customer that orders fairly regularly, but is paranoid-to the point that she has 4 deadbolts on her front door.  She happened to call today about 1:30p.m. when we were all busy with customers and couldn’t get to the phone.  She called immediately after and I answer.  She says, “I don’t know if I had the wrong number, but I called awhile ago and it rang and rang and rang.”  I said, “Yes, if you just called, we were busy with customers and I apologize.”  She replies, “Oh, well I thought maybe something had happened and there was a death in the family and the shop was closed for the day.”  At this point I’m thinking, “I wish.”  Wow.
We did have enough down time today to contemplate what, exactly, Hardee’s or Arby’s Roast beef is made from.  I have a theory that it’s meat-flavored gelatin, but I went on a mission to find out for sure.  I didn’t succeed.  Not today.  But, I’ll keep you posted. 
If you didn’t get the terribly geeky news from me, I HAVE AN ORCHID IN BUD!!!!!  And, now, the pics to prove it:

Don’t look at me like that….just humor me!  Thank you!  Was that so hard?  🙂  I’ll keep you posted on it’s progress.  I know you’re at the edge of your seat. 
Hey, on a final, dis-tastefully funny note: 
You know what’s better than winning a Gold Medal at the Special Olympics?———————–> Walking.
