I have BEEN knee deep in Poinsettia's at work AND just now dug myself out!
I have a love/HATE relationship with my job sometimes.....Case in POINT.....When YOU thought & were PRESSURED into making a POINSETTIA order..... IN JULY.....innocently thinking....YOU would need 600 Poinsettias for the Christmas Holiday....NOT taking in to consideration that the ECONOMY would BE in the crapper AND YOU just might have to adjust that order..... I mean REALLY...IN July AS I recall.....Christmas seemed REALLY far away...AND my brain was just focused on when my next Passion fruit snow cone would happen AND do my firecracker earrings clash with my Americana acid washed HEADBAND..... OR should I serve PLAIN hot DOGS or spring for those fancy BRATS at the next BBQ?!.....
SOOOO can I or SHOULD I be blamed AND PUNISHED....... REALLY for the fact that MAYBE, JUST maybe.....I over ordered a bit too heavy on the POINSETTIA'S!?
UGH! IF my grave stone would show my disgust for Poinsettias....
It will read something like this......
Here Lies Rosie:
Who ORDERED too many colorful Posies,
a lot of lilies & Hydrangeas & even some daisy's
But with the Poinsettias she caught a BAD case of the LAZY'S
She forgot to pay attention and water the blooms...
So Rosie; your fate in POINSETTIA Heaven forever LOOMS!!!!
OK I'm DONE.....
