Holiday Cheer

Okay. Tell me there's nothing creepy about displaying festive Christmas flowers that were originally meant as a sympathy gift but which were delivered to my address by mistake, even though the addressee does not live here.

In my own defense, I went so far as to try to look up the addressee to determine if she in fact lived nearby, and was willing to *take* the flowers to her, if I could find her. Having failed to find her, I then looked up the name of the guy who sent them, and called him to tell *him* that I was willing to redeliver them if he could figure out where they should go. I suspect that he's a funeral director, actually (as no normal guy answers the phone at 8:30pm on a Thursday night with "hello, Brasco and sons"). And since pointsettia plants probably cost $1.50, he told me not to go to any trouble, and to keep and enjoy them, and he'd try to see if they could find the intended recipient. So, you know, permission and all. Not stealing them.

Still. Sympathy flowers. Though not lillies, thank goodness.

Now I have to figure out how to keep the cats from eating them. (Morgan has already tried. Twice.)

NO. NOT CREEPY AT ALL.

Surely the spirit of the deceased won't wander the earth forever looking for their condolence flowers.

I'm sure the DEATH FLOWERS make the apartment really Chistmas-y!

:p

Thank you. SO HELPFUL.

The DEATH FLOWERS are sharing the top of the TV with the traditional AXE-MURDERER SANTA.

So, it's like, a theme.

You really should take a picture of axe murderer santa to use as your lj icon before Christmas is over.
