Valentine’s Day and Romancing the Phone
It’s time you let your iPhone help you make the big romantic decisions ahead of Valentine’s Day: Will you choose red, white, or brown?
Valentine’s Day can be a problematic time for people that consider it a negative “EEE”: Event for Emotional Exploitation.
In some ways, you’d like to ignore it as a overly commercialized, mass-market event, but you don’t want to be considered a forgetful, inconsiderate cad. To show your disregard for this day – and your regard for the significant other – you really need to have something planned well beforehand – like some flowers or chocolate. And you need to do this privately, all by yourself.
Combining brainstorming and a brief walk through the Nuremberg center, I came up with three basic options: red cut roses or tulips, white roses or tulips, or brown bulbs.
With these ideas in mind, I was able to quickly take care of the operational details as I strolled through the center. I snapped pictures of the potential flowers, recorded the location where they were sold, and had a record of the prices – then securely hid these details away in the Avira Vault so my ideas could remain completely my own.
Then I rated my findings:
- Red roses are the traditional favorite. But, really, who needs tradition?
- White flowers looked beautiful, but somehow they lacked something – like tradition.
- Tulips, especially the single-color ones, seemed fine, but … I only saw the cut ones.
These pictures helped me find what I was really looking for – and didn’t see – bulbs for classic red tulips that could blossom in the house now, then go out to the garden for next year. The clock is ticking.
