    But, Michael, why are you so worried about being seen in a flower shop?! Its not like you are going to buy flowers for a GIRL your own age, you know !!! ;)

    I can’t understand this latent flower shop fear. Is Mike afraid of the implications or something? I would be a proud customer of a flower shop, capable of buying frivolous flowers for my mother. It’s a sign of prosperity. I was always slinking into cheap restaurants and fast food places and gorging myself while the staff looked on in curiosity, estimating how much my mother must dislike me that I was forced to eat there. That would be a lot more embarrassing than going into a flower shop in my opinion.

    Yeah, maybe in Canada, flowers are something only girls like, or something. I can’t remember any of us being scared to be seen in a flower shop when we were kids. Now, going into a woman’s ‘specialty store’ (lingerie), or holding Mom’s purse while she shopped, THAT was a no-no…

    Did Mrs. Baird die yet? Considering Michael often stole Mrs. Baird’s flowers to give to Elly, he could go to the funeral parlor and swipe the flowers meant for her grave!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When I was in high school, I went out with a guy whose dad was a florist. I would often wait for Ken at the family flower shop, taking the opportunity to look into the big refrigerated room where the flowers were stored. I’d sneak into the back room where vases were kept and arrangements were designed. It was exciting. I loved the ambience, the colours, and the smell, and when Ken gave me a corsage, I kept it for as long as I could. Flowers are still my favourite gift — to give and to get!

    It is the child mentality. Many men go into flower shop theses days.

    I wouldn’t have any problem buying those, but this guy I knew pretty well used to buy huge 36 count packages of prophylactics. He would be embarrassed as heck when the unprofessional young female clerks burst out laughing at this purchase.
