It's clearly a sphere...
made of daisies, my dear...
oh, you've nothing to fear...
opinions needed here!
Ok, I am done channeling Dr. Seuss,
but I really do want your 2 cents.
I bought these daisy spheres ( I am using
the technical term because when I typed the
other, more common word for round objects,
weeeeeell, it just seemed too indelicate an
utterance for an Austen reader, so I opted
for "sphere"...it rhymed better too!)
I bought them at the 99 Cent Store...
And I will state, flat out, that whenever
I see daisies, I think of "You've Got Mail"!
(You know, when Meg Ryan still had her
real lips!) I don't adore the movie, but I
do adore her apartment and her shop!
So, when I showed my not-to-be-named
sister, I got the look...you know...eyes half-
squinted, brows quizzical, head tipped to one
side as the mouth says, "Eh, they're ok..."
while the face says, "OH GOD, PLEASE
TELL ME SHE'S ADOPTED!"
Haaaaaaarrrrrmph! I like them!
But am I just a freak spurred on by a lackluster
Are they terminally & tragically tacky?
Or, deep down, next to one of those misplaced
paint splotches (the one right next to the sticker
that reads "Made In Outer Mongolia") do they have
have any sort of redeeming decorative value?
What say you?
