Yesterday an email with this title slid past my spam filter. I didn't open it, but I wrote the title down. It seemed profound...now I know why:
A man at Planned Parenthood today went away for a while, and came back with a bundle of flowers. My heart sank. He opened his car door and put them in. Then he stood behind the fence and smoked a cigarette.
I just can't even express the churning thoughts and feelings that I have about that. Was it gratitude that prompted the purchase? Was he trying to make it up to her? Did he think this would placate her? Was he trying to be romantic?
From now on, flowers will mean something to her that he will obviously never understand.
