A Rose

I forgot to mention in my post about Valentine’s Day that one of the students, not my student actually as I only interact with him during study halls and such, was handing out long-stemmed red roses to quite a few of the female teachers and staff on Valentine’s Day. Knowing the student as much as I do, he was probably hoping that it would increase his reputation as a ladies man (or a G, as I am told). Which might lessen the thoughtfulness behind the gift.

But I was touched anyway. I’m not a fan of roses really, especially not red ones as they seem a bit overdone. But it broke on the journey home, so I stuck it in a small glass of water and it sits on my kitchen counter.

It’s quite nice despite the rose-ness and red-ness of it.
