I got this rose last weekend when I went to that bridal show I didn’t want to be at. When you first got there, they gave you a sticker that said “Bride” and had you walk through a little gate thing where they handed you a bag of brochures and a rose. Somehow, despite leaving the rose in the ridiculously hot car all day, it managed to stay alive. The Jackster put it in a bottle of water when we got home and it actually did pretty well.
Today is the first day that I’ve noticed it looking a little worse for the wear. But when I looked at it, it immediately reminded me of the rose from Beauty and the Beast. I wonder what will happen when all the petals fall off.
