The annual gift

I just sent my stepdaughter home to her mother with the annual bouquet of flowers that I give her as a token of my esteem.

I sent them in a styrofoam drink cup from Sonic. Is that tacky?

here's a little advise. I'm sure the ex-wife has no idea of the true meaning of your gift. However, One day the step-daughter, just like you, will google them and then SHE will know. Is that really what you want?

If I'm lucky, they'll work long before the kid learns to use Google.

And, um, why exactly would I care if she knows that I don't like her mother? If she's anything like the bitch's other two kids, she won't like her in another year or two, either.

Crazy ex-wives are like fibromyalgeurs. They're pains in the ass and all of their problems are caused by imaginary shit.

You are killing me!!! My daughter is wondering why I am laughing. Please send some of you beautiful flowers to her father & step monster as they are my fibromyalgia. Thanks for the perfect description for them...'pains in the ass and all of their problems are caused by imaginary shit.'

Hey, don't feel bad. It could be worse. My daughter put her stepmother into anger management therapy ( unfortunately, she later also had a psychotic episode and is now heavily medicated).

I'm not kidding about this.

Man a mojito sounds really good right now.. imagine if Sonic served mojitos.. that would rock my face off. Sorry.. I can't seem to get off the subject of Sonic now.

It's not tacky it's recycling.

When dealing with an issue of etiquette, I always think to myself: What would Martha Stewart do?

Martha Stewart would totally give the flowers.

Daily

Frequently

Probably hand delivered by her trusty assistants in the khaki pants and peach blouses.

I don't think she'd use a Sonic cup though.

That has got to be the most elegant way to say "eat shit and die". I think I will order some and hand out one to each of my fibromyalgia, pseudoseizure, toe hurt for 3 years, drunk as fuck and puking on my scrubs, favorite patients. You know you gotta have high patient satisfaction.

You are sick and twisted. You are my hero.

I think that Martha stewart may use the sonic cup after bedazzling in first.

Isn't it nice to know that your readers are as whacko as you? I can't believe it's that time of year. My yearly sinus infection is gone now and my Raid floral-scented Flonase is doing wonders for the sneezing. Have a pint of Benadryl for me baby! Bottoms up! :รพ

Dude, 'round here those are called "ditch lilies." Cause that's where they grow. Everywhere.

You kick ass.

Your twisted, I love you!
