My boyfriend told me that in his culture it is common to welcome new people into your home with flower petals, strewn across the floor.
Since I am incredibly
gullable sweet, I did exactly that!
… The first thing he said when crossing the doorstep and seeing these lovely orange and purple petals was: “Sweetheart, are you the one who is going to clean this up?”
He was very surprised though… especially since he was only joking 😉
