So, I offended my parents with the vintage porn. Oh gosh. Mom, Pop, I'm sorry. I thought the photograph was rather arty. You know, long before I was arranging flowers I was taking photographs. I guess I forget sometimes that this is a little blog about a flower shop but I've always been extremely candid and thought this was what people liked about it. I hope I didn't offend anyone else. I do apologize if I did. For the record, I think all forms of affection are lovely as long as no one's getting hurt. Perhaps the sentiment "F*@# I love you", was a bit crass but I thought it was passionate. If you're so moved by how much you love someone that you have to swear about it, that's pretty great in my mind. If you've been following the blog, you've been privy to the gangsta rap links. Perhaps it was shocking for my parents because they still have dial up and have never clicked on these links before because they take far too long to load. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that I've probably been offending people from the beginning, they just didn't know it. I'd love to open up a discussion about this. Did you feel offended? If so, why? Not to rock the boat further but I quickly did up this censored version and honestly this kind of censorship offends me more. Kids are blowing each other up on X boxes across the country but some good ol' fashion porn is making us uncomfortable?Something tells me I'm going to have to send another apology to my pop. I wish I could stick to flowers and furniture but this blog has become my outlet, maybe I'm crossing too many lines? Does my blog actually require a disclaimer? Frankly, I find some of the Hall and Oats hair styles from recent posts far more offensive than the porn. Sorry Oats.
