Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and this story was told to me by a friend and may or may not be true. Regardless, it’s quite amusing.

A couple had been arguing all night. These rows, while rare, happened and usually lasted two or three days. This time, however, the husband was worried as he had an early flight and usually relied on his wife to wake him as he often slept through the alarm clock’s buzz.

Getting ready for bed and not wanting to start another salvo, he decided to write her a note and place it on her pillow so she would know to wake him. “Please wake me at 5am as I have an important flight. Thank you.”

The next morning, he awoke and looked at the clock. It was after 8am. Fuming, he jumped out of bed and began forming the dressing-down he’d be giving his wife when he got downstairs.

Then he saw, on the night table next to the clock, a note:

“It is 5am. Time to wake up.”


Hmm, maybe if he’d left the note with a beautiful flower?

Until next time,

Ken Bolt
