I rarely get flowers for a specific occasion. He does tend to surprise me with them though. When he is away, sometimes he will arrange to have them delivered to me to let me know he is thinking of me. I don't know how he does it, but no matter the time of year he always manages to make sure I get my Stargazer Lilies!
I did buy flowers for him once. There was something to say for sure! It was, "How dare you forget our anniversary AGAIN!" It was our 5th or 6th anniversary and he completely forgot it, for the second year in a row. So I hired a limo service and a lady (she was to be all dolled up, in a silver sequin gown with a side-slit to her waist-she was a knock out)to deliver a box of long stemmed red roses to my husband at work (on a military base). I thought the guys would tease him for all the hoop-la and pester him about who that woman was, but what I had no idea about was the fact that the woman I hired got extremely sick the morning of the delivery. They could not get ahold of me to ask what to do, so they went with their only other option. They sent a hot guy in a tux to deliver the flowers to my husband, at the base (in the middle of the day), instead. Oh, how I wish I could have been there for that. I don't know why I didn't think of it myself in the first place. The guys teased him relentlessly.
Can you believe he still forgets our anniversary every year after all that?
