Vicki. She asked if it was my business card. Her daughter asked to play with it and she showed it to the other kids. Her daughter then gave it to her baby brother. He tried to eat it. The flower held up well.

Woman on elevator. She said, "Ohh Kaay" in that way that tells you that you are a fucking weird asshole and you need to get away from me jerk. Then she said, "Thaaankss" in that way that tells you that she was not thankful at all. That's all right. Maybe I am over reacting.

Damon V. He said, "Great!" and asked, "What does it symbolize?" I told him it was a way to put myself out there and connect with other people. He added, "In a positive way." Then he said, "I will use it as a book mark" and he put it in his book. When he left he said, "Hold it down, man!" I need to use that.

Rachel. She said, "awwww." When I told her I give one away every day she said, "So I'm not fucking special!?!" She gestured to give it back to me but she kept it.

John, my boss. He looked at it upside down and said, "What is this?". I told him it was a flower and that I give one away a day. He said, "Thanks. I do not know what to say."

Skyler. She was painting a large flower in front of Utrecht hoping to draw people in to buy art supplies. She said, "How nice." When I explained that I gave one away a day she said,"This is for me?" As I left the store she said, "Thank you for my flower."

Ex-Caribou worker man. He was visiting his old co-workers. He use to give me free coffee and was always very nice. He said, "Thank you. I feel special. I am going to hang it in my kitchen!"

Woman on the elevator. She asked what it was and said something like, "That's nice" or "Isn't that nice?"

Kathleen, the concierge for the building I work in. She thought it was a joke and that I found it on the ground. When she realized it was not a joke, she liked it a lot and asked me a bunch of questions. She asked if it was the same material used to make sailboat sails and if I was an artist. I do not know the difference between the canvas used for sails and the canvas used for painting so I just said, "Yes". I said that I was not an artist, but I paint these flowers. Maybe I need to start saying yes to this question.

Woman who spilled her coffee. I told her that the coffee workers would clean up the mess and she should not worry about it. I gave her the flower. She laughed and said, "Thanks"

Filo (sp?). He is staying with Charlie and was at Charlie's ultimate frisbee game. He made a sound that was either, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh" or "Awwwwwwwwwwww". Then he said, "Thank you."

Genevieve a.k.a. V. V. She is a waitress at Johnny Rockets. She said, "How cute". She sat down, talked about art and her grand kids. She makes jewelry. She was very nice.

Woman who works in billing or finance. I feel bad that I do not know her name, we have spoken with each other a lot over the years. She is down about work and when I gave her the flower she held it to her chest and said, "Thanks! I needed this."

Lady throwing away ice tea who catered our company lunch. She looked at it for a while. Then said, "Thank you. I feel special". She laughed a little.

Woman walking with toddler. She could not have cared less. She mumbled, "Thank you", but she might as well have said, "Let me throw that away for you".

Post Office Lady. She said, "oh! Thanks. I appreciate it."

Pregnant lady at Caribou. She said, "Isn't that nice. Thanks." She got her coffee ready and, as she was leaving, said, "Thanks for the flower."

Today's flower had a dark back ground instead of the plain canvas that all the previous flowers have had. I will give these out for a while.

Steve. He works at the antiques place my Aunt Shirley works. He laughed and said, "Great! Thanks." Steve had really cool pants on. When you have really cool pants on, your chances of getting a flower might be higher.

Hollis. She got it because of her local celebrity status. Boy, the benefits of celebrity are huge! She thanked me. My friend, Jamie, told her about the project. Jamie later emailed me, saying that she framed it. I gotta be happy about that.

Manny. He said, "Another thing to hang on my desk". One of the women working at Caribou said, "I don't get this flower thing!". I guess I will give her the next one!

Lady on elevator. She said "How nice." Then she said, "I wish I had something to give every day." The doors of the elevator started to open and she said, "How about a smile". She turned to face me and gave a big smile.

Tammy. She was a little guarded but said, "Thank you".


Lisa, waiter at Wahoo!. She asked what it was and if my giving away flowers was my own mission of mirth. She liked it a lot.

Later, she came back, again saying how much she loved her flower, and said that she wanted to do a similar project where she wrote a mini biography about people and give them to others. Heather said that this was the best response I ever got. It was. This post does not do her response justice.

Cashier at Gibney's pub. She said, "I got another one!!". Oops! I did not mean to give one an individual twice. She asked if there was a rule against give two to a person. No, there is not.
