The inattentive males

I came home on Friday with a single red rose and baby's breath.
I placed it in a vase, and put in on display on the kitchen island.
It was beautiful.
I wondered what my husband would say. Surely he would ask who got me a rose.
But after 18 hours, frustrated, I finally asked the men in the household if they had even noticed the rose !
No one could admit to having even seen it !
And still no one even asked where it came from !
So I announced that a secret admirer gave it to me.
Son #2 asked me if that meant I was cheating on papa.
Oh heck ! I had to tell them the truth.
Sobeys was giving roses to customers on Friday morning.
What a household of inattentive males!
