botanical companionship

when i feel like wearing a necklace to work, i tend to bypass my daintier pieces in favor of larger costume ones. i usually alternate between a silver swirl on a silver chain and a large flower (cut from a shell) on a black silk cord. this morning i wore the flower.

paul: [standing on bed] yay!
paul: [sniffs flower]
me: huh?
me: did you just kiss the flower?
paul: yes.
paul: [kisses flower]
paul: i kissed it.

i picked him up off the bed and he rested his head on my shoulder.

paul: [sighs]
paul: my friend.
me: who is your friend?
paul: [sighs again] the flower.
