True Valentine's Day happeninggreenspun.com : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread
I was living in New Yark City, I lived on the upper west side and working on the lower left on Columbia just off Broadway. I had gone to work and went out to get a cup of coffee. As I was walking I was realizing what a beautiful spring day it was in the city. I reached the door of my work and was opening it when this man, and from my recollection he was very good looking, ran up to me pressed a single long stemed rose into my hand. With that he said, " You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen." Then he ran away. I was left with this rose given to me in the middle of New York City by a total stranger and my jaw was dropped to the ground. I was floored especially because he ran away. I tried to yell to him to stop and not run away but alas he was gone. So now whenever I feel down and unloved even by my children I remember that day in the City.
May everyone know the joy of being charished at least once in their lives.

That is great and it brings back memories to me. I remember when I was a guy with roses. Happened when I was 17 and got stood up on Valentines Day and was left holding 2 dozen boxed long stems (I REALLY wanted to impress her), just wanting a hole to crawl into. Decided to pass em out to my classmates like we did the cheap cards in grade school instead of throwing them away. Giving those away one at a time not only made me feel better, the girls liked em and I caught Teresa's eye and she decided to "remake the geek".
