Day One Hundred and Thirty-Nine: Rose

Rose:  February 16, 2009
Cory and I went to dinner at a nice restaurant Saturday night with some friends (one of whose birthdays happens to be Valentine's Day), and the restaurant gave the women gift bags, roses, and chocolate-covered strawberries. The gift bags were filled with promotional crap I don't want, I don't really like being given flowers (I love flowers; I just prefer them alive and growing to dead and commodified), and I didn't like the gendered division of the gifting, but the chocolate-covered strawberry was awesome and the rose was fun to take pictures of two days later.
