Today was my birthday and some joker decided to send to my work a large bouquet of flowers, mascotted by a teddy bear, tied with a big pink ribbon and a card which read:
Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
you love Java
and I love you.
You are my Ace
another cup of
Michael D. Cameron.
It’s not a work mate, they wouldn’t include the Java reference. Only a handful people know the name (and therefore could figure out the location) of my new place of employment. Revenge will be swift.
Upon inspection it appears the flowers are in a fairly heavy glass vase which surprised me. They were delivered from Jane Price Florist and the vase is priced at $25-30. All in all I am guessing the package cost between $70 and $100 (the teddy however was free). So this wasn’t a cheap prank. That makes me a little worried :-S
Here is a photo of the flowers on my desk:
