The Beast Ain’t Got Nothin’ On Me

 

The rose in my window

The rose in my window

I was given a rose for Valentines day, a full three weeks ago. It’s been in my window ever since, and shows none of the expected effects of time.  The stem shows no sign of limpness, not a single petal has fallen, and only in the past day or so has a bit of brown begun to sneak onto the rim of one of the petals.  I did nothing special to the water, have not given it food, nor have I paid it any special attention.  I have no idea what implications this has on my love life (especially as the rose was a gift from two friends of mine, not a romantic interest), if it is some mythical symbol of the impending necessity of finding my one true love, or just a strangely hardy rose, but either way, it’s pretty damn cool.

    Should we start a splinter-web-log, “flowersonwindowsills.wordpress.com”?

    YES! Only, I’d have to buy some flowers…
