The bride wanted a photo in front of a backdrop of sunflowers.
Years later, the groom lost his job and spent days scowling at his laptop screen, trying to look busy.
HER: “I’m never alone. You’re always here.”
She was right.
While she was at work, he planted sunflower seeds. Their yard became a jungle of yellow-maned monsters.
HER: “Why so many?”
“I planted them for you.”
“It looks like crazy people live here.”
“Well, that’s sorta true.”
By morning, sunflower stalks were piled like cordwood by the curb, waiting for the trashman to carry them away.
