You know your degree hasn't gone to waste

when you're grocery shopping & go past the floral department. I do it everytime I'm in the grocery store. The Wee One & I smell flowers. Hyacinths are my favorites. Especially purple ones. Pink & white are fine but purple? Heaven!

So I wander thru & discover a beautiful purple Hyacinth & in my head I think:

'You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;

'They called me the hyacinth girl.'*

and you realize that all those English Lit classes in college weren't for naught! Eliot, people! I'm quoting TS Eliot in the floral department of Publix.

So not only am I 5 with my love of ants on a log, I'm also still a 20 yr old quoting literature!

*The Waste Land. It also features the popular line "April is the cruelest month" Since the Wee One's birthday is in April I respectfully disagree!
