Take a Hint!

It’s not surprising to me that 42% of women do not receive fresh flowers as often as they’d want to. I’m one of those 42% of women. I think in the 7 years that we’ve been married I can count on one hand alone how many times I’ve received any sort of flowers from my husband.

Well now, I have a little thing that might help change that, god forbid he actually got the hint. The California Cut Flowers Commission has come up with a really cute and interesting idea that lets you drop the hint without your voice. The hint cards are really sort of cute and allow you to give your significant other the hint that you’d love some flowers without outright telling them ‘hey you never get me flowers’. I thought the idea was genius, my husband however not so much.

When asked what he thought about the idea, he said he wouldn’t get me flowers based on a little card I left somewhere as a hint. He said if he got me flowers it would be because he wanted to, not because I wanted them. Typical man! I actually decided to try them out and simply placed one near his shaving kit so it would be the first thing he saw in the morning. Well apparently he either didn’t see it or simply ignored it because I got no flowers, and it wasn’t moved from the place I put it.

You might have a little more success than I did with the hint cards, if your husband is the romantic lovey dovey type of guy these might work great, but if you have a hot headed stubborn man like I do, you might need to put some more work into it.

I do have to say though the flowers I got from the company were beautiful and I’d love to get more on a regular basis, but as we can see, that probably won’t happen for me anytime soon. So I’ll bask in the freshness and beautiful aroma from the flowers that I did get instead of whining about the hint cards not working so well.
