Sassy Sidenote: In Defense of Carnations

I think that carnations get the worst rap of all the flowers. I think it all started when, on an episode of Sex and the City, Charlotte was horrified when her date brought her a bouquet of carnations because they were so cheap. Well I have to say something, cheap or not, I really like carnations. I love how they look like little pom poms of color, I love how they smell, I love how long they last and sure, it doesn't hurt that they are pretty cheap. Right now I have some carnations cut really short so they form a little ball of color (see above) and every time I see them they make me smile. Its the simple things. So there I said it, sorry Charlotte, I love me some carnations.

Is there anything that most people poo poo but you really like?

I totally agree! I don't see what the big deal is. You get the most out of your money with these. You pay $100 for roses and they die in a week. You pay much less for bigger, pretty carnations and they last nearly a month! I love that about them.
