Makes me think of the final lines from "Hearts and Bones."

He sounds jealous...

You're hard to forget. But does he remember the sweetness or the thorns the most?

Pruning things with thorns shows you why WWII bombers flew in formation rather than scattering out.

Wha? Obama is your ex? I thought he hired a gardener for the White House lawn.

"Jealous Roses" would have been a cooler-sounding title, but it wouldn't have been accurate.

At least they weren't paper roses....

As if you'd admit it if the adjective "jealous" had any application.

DKWalser: I recommend that you read my blog. People who do, know I'll admit anything.

traditionalguy said...

On his blog RLC does seem to speak whatever he senses. It's like he is hiding out in plain sight.

Sorry. I let what I thought of at the time as a "good line" (better if said by Althouse herself) outweigh any concern for accuracy.

Richard Lawrence Cohen said...

Hey, DKWalser, thank you for a remarkably gracious reply. One doesn't expect that in the blogosphere.

TG: That's exactly what I do. Not hiding at all is the ultimate goal.

""Jealous Roses" would have been a cooler-sounding title, but it wouldn't have been accurate."

So you chose "Bittersweet Rose" when you just as well might have selected "Jealous Rose", and labeled it "Fiction" which few would care to notice before causing at least a short term commotion at Ann's house.

Richard Lawrence Cohen said...

Penny: I didn't label it fiction, and I've been told it caused friendly amusement over there, which was my intention.
