I sent a bouquet of cookie flowers for her 30th birthday. Who doesn’t love food? For my birthday two months later, she hopped in her car, drove to my work, dropped off a bouquet of cookie flowers. Yum, but what the hell?

    Did she try and one up ya or just liked your idea so much she returned the favor? I love real life stories. πŸ™‚

    • heh, this is a real life story for sure. πŸ˜‰ maybe i’m too pessimistic about it. though this was over 10 years ago and i still remember it like yesterday and for my swiss cheese brain that’s sayin something. what? i’m not so sure anymore.

    “Obligation people” are the worst! Are they just not creative? Why do they hang on to the relationship, anyway? I have so many rhetorical questions.

  3. This is one of those things that make you go “Hmmmm?”
    But it makes for a great 42. I’d say you came out ahead even if it did take more than a decade! πŸ™‚

    Ha ha ha. Maybe she just didn’t come up with any ideas for a gift. Hope it wasn’t the same bouquet πŸ˜›

    I’d assume she forgot where she got that really great idea to give a bouquet of cookies for a birthday gift. Probably because that’s exactly the sort of thing I’m likely to forget. πŸ™‚ Fun little anecdote, Christina! Thanks for sharing it.

  6. Great story. There really is something to be said for trying to be original when it comes to present giving. And it’s a lesson, I suppose. If you’re going to get back the same, make sure you give something you like πŸ™‚
