the culprit...

dear stargazer lily...

you are so beautiful, nestled inside my anniversary bouquet. your dottie center offsets the pink lusciousness of your wide open petals magnificently.

but may i please ask you one, very personal, question?

why, oh why, do you smell like death and funeral parlors and old lady, and worse yet -- a house of ill repute? your overwhelming scent is about ready to send me into fits of coughing and my co-worker has shut her office door because she doesn't want a migraine induced by your showy fragrance.

in the future, please try to temper your application of perfume -- this is an office setting after all and no one should be olfactorily assaulted each time they enter my cubicle. for heaven's sake, girlfriend, try to show a bit of restraint and decorum next time.

kindly,
your nauseous friend

...and, my friend, how do you know that a house of ill-repute smells like lilies??? :-)

I hate these flowers in bouquets and usually rip them out, if it's not going to ruin "the look"!
