Ok, so let’s say, you have finally decided to try out the “tale of 11 roses“. You woke up in the morning, and thinking about your lovely girlfriend, went to the local flower shop and asked for 11 roses… Only once you have reached home, you realized that line with “until the last rose dies” will not work that well (you haven’t picked up the fake rose, stupid!).
But don’t worry… we can always come up with another line, can’t we?
This line will make more sense, if you will try to give the flowers to your girlfriend somewhere near the mirror. While pointing to the mirror, just say casually: If you held up these roses into a mirror, you’d be looking at 12 of the most beautiful things in the world.
