A Mexican Rose
Renn never buys me flowers. As they're expensive I wouldn't want him to all the time. While we were in Mexico, however, a white woman with one eye came behind us and said: "Roses, $2, Roses, $2." As we were the only couple in the group of USU students, the attention turned to us. Renn said: "Do you want a rose?" "Yes," I said. Then the woman gave it to him and he to me. He opened his wallet to discover he had no small bills. So, I handed him $2 for my rose : - ) I carried it all the way from Mexico to the San Diego airport where I took it on the plane with me to SLC and then went on a 2-hour drive up to Logan. Now it sits withered on a window sill. I still smile when I look at it.
