Uniquely Chic

Everyone loves getting flowers. Even if it's because you turned 40. It's even better if you get an arrangement that's called "Uniquely Chic":

Isn't it chic? The online description says it's a "vibrant mixture of opulent orange and zesty pink flowers casually arranged in a clear glass cube container." Who doesn't love zesty flowers?

I guess it could be easily confused by the delivery guy with this:

I can't find this one on the website, but I'm thinking the description would be something like "an earthy mixture of generic daisies, crunchy purple buds, and plastic berries in a terra cotta pot."

Don't get me wrong--I'm grateful to get flowers of any kind. They are both beautiful, and I was happy with the arrangement and most importantly for the thought behind it. But if the person sending them thinks that they sent something that is "chic" then what is actually delivered shouldn't be the complete opposite.

WOW. Not even close. LOL

Looks more like flowers for someone that turned 80.

Corrina--no, not remotely close!

Mom--Exactly. A "granny arrangement" was the term he used to describe them. I'm only half that old!

I like the pink and orange ones. They remind me of Dunkin' Donuts' logo.

JD--Now that you mention it, I totally see it! My dessert after my birthday dinner (homemade chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy--yum) was actually a DD Boston Cream donut with a candle in it.

Maybe the delivery guy was color blind.
