2 Dozen Long Stem Red Roses

We all heard that lightning doesn't strike twice but sometimes luck does. Remember on Valentine's Day when Terese received a dozen red roses from the competition she won through the local paper?

To her surprise she received another box from Roses Only with 12 red roses in there! Someone must've made a mistake and sent the roses out twice or some poor winner didn't receive his/her prize, so she rang up the local paper and told them about the extra box of roses she received and the lady from the paper said she would investigate the matter and that she would call back later.

A few minutes later the lady from the local paper called to speak to Terese. She said she contacted Roses Only and explained what Terese told her and that somehow along the line a mistake was made, thus Terese received an extra box of roses. Roses Only could not figure out where it went wrong but said they would not bother to chase up the matter and that Terese should just keep the extra box! This is another lucky day for her!


So there we have it, 2 vases full of long stem red roses; 1 won by competition the other by sheer luck! Double the flowers, double the luck and double the happiness! I double jealous liao!

What double jealous. This means you don't have to spend money buying long stem red roses for several years because you can talk about these bunches year in year out.

I still prefer the roses from ur garden...the ones u grew with tender loving care ;)

Looks like 2006 is a lucky year for Terese. Tell her to buy Tatts. She may become an instant millionaire ;)
