GALZ n ROSES

Just got 3 red roses from my friend in office.

No people, I am not a lesbian ..... And my friend is married with 2 kids.

Anyway , my post is not about me or my friend.

Ever wondered why guys always get roses for the dates and girls never buy their dates anything ?

Definitely , it aint coz galz have this craaaaaaaaaazy obsession with roses.

Personally , i like roses on rose shrubs than in some bouquet with other flowers and grass.

Therez was this incident in my college ... We had the ' Valentines Day ' celeb ... and I was adamant that I wouldn't take the roses from anybody.
We , the girls ,had specific codes for colors : A red outfit indicated that the girl was in love ... Blue indicated she was waiting , Green indicated an intense jealousy due to triangular relationships ( Ahem !!! )
And of all the many girls there , I was the only one in my batch in black.
And , obviously I was not offered a red rose ...
My best friend - God bless him - got me a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge bunch of "by-the-roadside-flowers" .... And frankly , I was flattered...


What is it with us and flowers ? I remember fighting with my friend when he refused to buy me the flower I wanted on my b'day.

I remember my friend ranting about her fiance's view about gifting flowers

And every Holly / Bolly flick has men gifting flowers to women.

Men ... don't u like flowers ? Don't you like being gifted with them ?

These days , I buy wooden flowers from the various exhibitions ......... they look damn good !!!

P.S : I wanted to paste my favourite wooden flower pic that I took with my webcam ... but , Blogger refuses to let me do that ... Grrrrrr !!!!!

P.S again : IT has been an awesome day ... started with 1.5 hrs of RD Burman ..... Beautiful starting to a day, Don't u think ???
And now, just got back from a 30 km drive ..... 3 of us , girls ..... saw more flowers by the roadside...

Guys , tell me why you dont get flowers.
Girls , tell me all about your flowers ....

flowers look better on plants, don't they! i wonder what all $#%$#% that a rose plant would have to say about its precious flowers being hijacked for extracurricular purposes, by crazy humans... ;-)

n
our exams are scheduled to begin on the 29th of November.

Oh as for the info on u -- u did tell me.. Me forgot :).. and as far as me not posting day to day stuff.. very simple.. get up, go to work, come back, browse and watch TV, cook, eat and head to sleep.. except for couple of frnds.. dont even get to talk each day.. so tht sums up everything.. weekends I get to go arnd.. so I write abt tht.. :)

UD said...

first time on ur blog,
u get roses bcoz u r fond of flowers.

Art said...

well i love flowers... and yes i know quite a few guys who like them too(but very particular)
and its not that girls dont gift on dates.. They do...

I love cute baby pink flowers...They are so tender and innocent... :)

silverine said...

I just love red roses....and 'no' I would not gift one to guy cos a rose is so feminine. It looks better in a gals hand :)

p.s. I love Jasmines too

Arz000n said...

Roses are beautiful....Just like you gals..

But they dont last for long...Just like we guys...we dont want commitment the moment we hand ova roses to you.

Goood guys dont give roses...they give DIAMONDS :D

tcr_79 said...

Because too much meaning is attached to "giving a rose" and guys like to keep it simple.

feminine expressions said...

oh, i love the flowers i receive, a single bud or a brilliant bouquet. when i have them i take them to bed with me, set them next to me so i can breathe them all night long and worship them upon my waking.

maybe diamonds are forever, but perhaps much of the value of the petal is in its fragility, the truth it will not last and calls for my affections now. it is as our own feminine blossoming, our own beauty, our own fragility...it is beautiful life.

and if perchance men wonder if the gift is forgotten once the bouquet has wilted, i assure you it is not. no matter the years, i poignantly recall the most romantic ones i've received, the most creative ones, the most surprising ones, the most exotic ones, the most unusual ones, the strongest ones, the prettiest ones, the ones with the most exquisite vase, for each is a gift with its own message and the relationship with you is captured in the arrangement.

sometimes the gift of a flower is just a flower; other times it is something more.

i daresay the rose is delighted to spend part of its short life in the care of my adoration (well, i hope so).

and, yes, i love to give flowers or plants to a man who is endearing to me...

**No people, I am not a lesbian

LOL! it's ok...even I get flowers from my sis, mum and many girl friends..hehe...

Though Im not much of a gardener (due tolack of time) Im strongly connected with flowers and trees...I have a deep passion for colors and petals and fragrances...
I dunno why guys hardly get flowers but I think Deepa we should start the trend :) It's a nice thought...and na it's not sissy at all :)

And one must stop to smell the flowers...what a beautiful world we live in...

Guys dont run away from flowers...

Guys run away from commitment...

Thats a fact

Savur, Atul said...

i personally am not a flower person - they wither away in a couple of days so their purpose is lost. i am more of a chocolate person. a happy tummy is far better than a jar full of flowers, dont you think? plus like poison said, flowers look better on plants :)

cheers

I prefer the flowers on plants rather in someone's hands..

With all due respects to Mr. Nehru on his b'day but i hate roses.. esp the red ones (no heartburns here lol)
