Yesterday when the Fed Ex guy rang my doorbell I assumed that it was one of the many things we ordered
for the Goon Squad’s birthday on Tuesday.
But it was a bouquet of flowers.
And it came without a card.
I asked Gabe if he sent me flowers. He said “No, but I should have.” (I thought that was a pretty good answer) It isn’t from the kids, or my parents or my in-laws.
It is a lovely spring arrangement and I have no idea who to thank.
I would think maybe they delivered it to the wrong place, but my name and address were on the shipping label.
Here are my only theories:
1) I sit on a few advisory boards. Maybe one of them sent the flowers and forgot to take credit.
2) I have done some consulting work for a large organization. About two months ago they asked for my address so that they could send me something. I never got anything. Maybe they sent them.
3) I have a lot of jobs, freelance and otherwise. It is possible that one of the blogs I write for sent them to me. Possibly for mother’s day.
4) I won a contest for a bouquet of flowers and then forgot about it.
5) I have a secret admirer.
I am going to guess that #5 is the least likely since I am grumpy, I can’t seem to stop gaining weight and I don’t bathe nearly as often as I would like to. But who knows? Maybe some people like that.
Did you send me flowers?
