As a jaded cynic who has not only been married 21 years but has been in the flower business for nearly 10, I have a pretty low tolerance for sap. So imagine my delight* when the gentleman sending 21 roses to his wife for their 21st anniversary told me his card message: "I want these roses to see how beautiful you are."
He at least had the good sense to say, "There--is that corny enough?"
Didn't have the heart to tell him that as far as I'm concerned there are only two degrees of corny: not and way too.
*I was, however, exceedingly delighted to run his credit card, thank you very much.
