So, I witnessed an orgy today


Oh, how appropos.

The Husband has picked two flowers from the overgrown weeds behind the shop in the past week. I've only been given flowers thrice since we've been together - 10 years August 10th.

Today he brought me a delicate pink morning glory. It was quite beautiful until bugs started crawling out of it. I looked closer and there were seven teensy beetles gorging on the pollen along the stamen. Upon further inspection I realized four of these little black buggers were actually, erm, mating.

I considered squishing the flower, bugs and all. But I couldn't do it.

So I took the morning glory back outside and tossed it back into the weeds so the beetles could finish their orgy.

I can't even get a flower I can keep.
