flower language has always been an intense source of disappointment for me
like, they all mean really generic things like “love” or “forever” or “i’m sorry”
i thought you could combine flowers
like you could just send someone a bouquet and from the combination of hibiscus and posies and tulips they’d understand “the rebel leader is dead, rendezvous at the docks at 8, bring the dog, you will need lighter fluid and a large tomato”
I really hope no one’s answered this for you yet, I saw this and got so excited that my obscure knowledge base might come into use. I had to stretch a few flowers so to speak but Victorian flower language allows for alteration in meaning depending on colour, fruit, flower, bud, steam, leaves and thorns, so I didn’t feel I was too far out of line. This message would work best as two bouquets bound together. First red Nasturtium with no leaves (red denotes a leader, the nasturtium a patriot) mixed with white or red Mask Flowers (rebellion, red if you want to emphasize fighting, white martyrdom) around Cypress (death). Then Chick weed (rendezvous) and Blue Convolvulus (night) surrounded by eight White Popular Leaves (symbolises the time: eight), Yellow Iris (flame, and a flower that grows by rivers) and Yellow Prarie Dock Flowers (this was closest I could find to docks)and one large Tomato Leaf, all bound in Dogwood Bark. Dogwood represents deceit, but as far as I could find the bark wasn’t used symbolically, and as you referred to the dog instead of a dog, I thought it was likely the pun should be a dead giveaway.
So there’s your rebel message!
so i had a piece of paper that I wanted to get rid of cause it had like my ssn and stuff on it so I figured fuck it, let’s burn the piece of paper. i severely underestimated the amount of smoke this would produce so i shoved the burning paper into our pellet stove and let it do its thing. then i sprayed like a quarter of a bottle of air freshener to make it hopefully smell less like smoke. well, at least i didn’t burn down the house…
if it makes you feel any better, the first time my roommate left me alone in our apartment, i promised her I wouldn’t burn the house down while she was gone. literally the first thing i did after she left was accidentally catch a paper towel on fire when trying to get toast out of the toaster oven. so, you know, at least you started your fire purposefully.
oh my god
when u try to tell ur friends a pun
