On my errand run today I found myself searching through the vegetable aisle for good ripe tomatoes, a couple of cucumbers, some kale and a tube of liquid steel for my car (but that's another story). I noticed a young man awkwardly standing by the flower bin staring at a bunch of yellow roses - a bouquet in each hand.
I rounded the corner between the bananas and the melon stand when I heard him say, ''YOU'RE a woman."
"Yes. Yes, I am."
"Which one of these would you like to have?"
His right hand held three large blooms and his left a cute bunch of four budding blooms - my favorite.
"It would melt my heart to get these," I said, choosing the buds.
"Thanks!" he said.
and then he walked away
They weren't for me?
