you won

december 23, 2009
That was the card delivered with some flowers, from my mother in law, to Libby.
My mother in law was disappointed that she didn't give Libby a flower after her violin concert. So, the next day, she called the local florist and ordered some flowers... asking for them to write on the card "owed you one". Libby was a bit confused when she opened the card. Then we read it out loud and had a big chuckle.

The two winners of the crochet inspiration book are:
#9 ijoemonkey and #167 Lynn.
Please e-mail me (address in sidebar) with your address.

Have a great one.

That's hysterical! Once ordered a birthday cake for my son - white frosting - I asked the decorator to use any color frosting for the writing. Picked up the cake - "Happy Birthday Kevin" was written in white on a white cake! One of my favorite memories!

So, I wonder if the person taking the message 1) thought it made perfect sense, 2) thought they actually wrote what you asked, i.e. this is what they'd write if they wanted to convey the same meaning or 3) has given up wondering why people want such strange things written on cards!

lol

On my 30th birthday, my mother sent me flowers along with a note that read "you're only 31!". I was very offended that my own mother couldnt' get my age right, especially for such a milestone. Turns out she meant "you're only 30 once".
