'Tis the Season...
Submitted by mojo on
The bluets are out in full force right now. Any lawn worth its salt has big clumps of them, mixed in with dandelions and violets.
When I was a wee lass, coming home from school one day, I picked a bunch of them--probably off of someone's lawn, although back then we DID have large abandoned fields to walk through, as well--and presented them to my Favorite Mother. She made a BIG FUSS over my thoughtfulness and put the poor wilted things in her special purple glass vase in the center of the table. And she assured me that bluets were her most FAVORITE FLOWER EVAAR.
I have no idea if she was just Lying To a Child To Shut Her Up or what, but to this day every time I see bluets my very first thought is "Bluets! They're my mother's FAVORITE FLOWER."
Just another glimpse into the twisted brilliance that is Mojo's brain.
