Ordering On-Line

a flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and a man cannot live without love ~  Max Muller

Yesterday I committed the cardinal sin for a guy ordering a gift on-line.  My gift to a friend of mine arrived on the wrong day!

A bouquet of flowers I ordered from a great florist in California arrived on February 11th, and not on Valentine’s Day.  That is so very bad.

It was also completely my fault.  In completing the long and complicated on-line order form I neglected to enter the day I wanted the damn flowers delivered ~ so of course they were delivered immediately.  Bummer!

If a guy is going to order flowers for Valentine’s Day, then they should arrive on February 14th.  Similarly, if a guy is going to order flowers or a gift for a friend’s birthday, then that should arrive on her birthday, and not some random day near her birthday.

Only at Christmas is it permissible for flowers or a gift to arrive early, because nobody actually delivers on Christmas Day.

So, my hugely expensive bouquet for Valentine’s Day is slightly wasted.

Men can be such fools at times.

Some say it’s not the gift that counts, but the thought behind it.  And that a kind word is worth more than any mere bouquet of flowers.  All I know is that I hope my friend isn’t too disappointed.

a man can’t really go wrong sending flowers to a woman

  1. Flowers are great no matter what day they arrive on. If they are early, you are showing how much you care by sending it when it is not going to get lost in anyone else’s flowers. Also, the florist won’t need to add that to their places to go that day before 6 pm…..Smart man!


  2. Completely permissible mistake. First of all, (in my opinion) life falls more in “seasons” than in “specific days”. All of February is a Season of Valentines, in that respect. The person receiving them so close to Valentine’s Day knows they are meant for Valentine’s Day. Second of all, it’s flowers! They are always welcome, no matter what day! You done good Jack 🙂
