Just like that

Someone gave me a pink gerbera at work today.

"What's this for?" I asked, quite surprised.

"Just like that." Came the reply, punctuated with a smile.

I looked at the flower in my hand. It was the prettiest flower I'd ever held in my hands.



















And suddenly, it felt like someone had given me a hug just when I really needed one. It totally made my day.

Once in a while, we all need a hug.

Or a pink gerbera.

Just like that.

a long time since i've seen one of those... they apparently smile back at you.. at least the orange ones do..

and yes... occasionally, everyone needs a gerbera... they flower perennially I hear.. ironical? .. *shrug*

Bas yuhi?

No one has ever given me a "bas yuhi" gift. So note for when you meet me Sayesha. You get me one.

But then there will be a reason behind the gift.

damn. foiled my own plans.

Sayesha said...

Ro, you're crazy.

Welcome back, Surreal Reality. Yes, gerberas indeed smile at you. They're my favourite flowers. But I'm still trying to make up my mind whether I like a bunch of yellow ones more, or a mix of pink and white ones.

And Sahil, you wish. Haha! :)

Enjoy the moment and have a great day!

Thanks, mjey!

Hey Virdi,
One jaadu ki jhappi back to you, and to everyone here on this blog! :)

Hahahaha, you know what? I was actually holding the flower when I took the photo, but I cropped out the hand bit before posting, because I knew "certain people" would start accusing me of "marketing my hand on my blog" again! Sorry man, next time :)

if gerberas smile what do white carnations do? this girl in office has a vase with a few and they refuse to die even after two weeks!

the devil said...

sheesh !!!!... flowers in office .... What utter crap !!!!

What offices need are
- A cigarette lighter
- An ash tray
- A bar cabinet
- A secretary with...(tra-la-la-la)
- A Live Feed to Premier League Matches
- A phone

Sayesha said...

Guys, what's with all the gerbil talk? :O
Please take note that Sayesha likes flowers, not rodents!

And Devil, uska gussa mere blog par kyun utaar rahe ho?

Apple, some flowers can really live longer than two weeks. And apparently, adding a panadol to the water in the vase helps!

Parvez, Anubhav, Thanks!
