It’s the first for me.
As a Nigerian geh (girl). Getting flowers is strange and weird.
But I got a Rose flower . For the first time .
You guessed right, I didn’t know how to react or what to say . So I said Thank you. Weird I know,
A white rose flowers conveys a strong and deep message of hope, respect, and love. It conveys the purity of that love and deep respect.
While this sounds like a girl’s dream come true, I didn’t really feel that way .
Because I for one , is not a fan of plucking flowers as a sign of love as they will eventually wither.
But this I accepted. Placed in a vase of water and watched it wither as days passed by .
I got flowers for the first time .
And the offer, I had to decline.
Truth be told , I was a little depressed because it’s not everyday you find a tall handsome gentle man with flowers to offer 😉 .
Why I declined is story for another day .
But I just wanted to tell you dear reader, I got flowers for the first time and now I am very sure I do not like receiving them .
As they wither and this makes sad .
Makes me think about how nothing lasts forever.
For even this love professed with this flower will one day wither away 🥀.
