But then, why wouldn't they?
My wife is pregnant with our first child so I'm stepping up my joke game to reach dad level.
Mother's day was not so long ago, and since she isn't a mother yet but only a future mother, I didn't get her flowers I only got her seeds, which are future flowers.
At least I found it hilarious and so did she. Hope you guys enjoy this!
So I picked up the leaf and said, “Yes.”

For a silent auction for a non-profit I'm helping with they need rose puns/play on words for the packages. It's a wine event as well. Here are some of the ideas I've figured out as well. Whine and Rows? Rose Colored Glasses Rose and Shone
We were eating dinner and my brother was talking about an old high school teacher of his: "she called it herstory instead of history because she thought that the important parts of the past were about women instead of men."
"So wait, does that mean she calls it a HERsterectomy instead of a HISterectomy?"
A beat goes by.
My dad broke the silence with "Ginganinja888, where did you get that from?"
Proudly grinning, I say, "I just came up with it."
Dad: "Oh God, even worse."
Calling it herstory is dumb because history actually stems from Greek and is in fact not a conspiracy to place men at the center of all important events.
I know I spelled hysterectomy wrong, it was to highlight the joke.
After I left for college, my mom threw away the flowers and stems of my plants, but she saved the rest. She pressed them in paper to preserve them and sent them to me in a care package.
I asked, "Mom, why would you do that?"
She told me, "I just want you to remember your roots."
Work had a site wide happy hour last week and my friend comes up to me and says "These are some funny carrots" (They were boiled and had long stems attached)
I replied "Yea, they were telling me some good jokes over there by that table"
And on the way home, we were discussing how plants retrieve nutrients, and why pine trees can survive through the winter. I said, "I wonder if it stems from the shape of their leaves?" To which my dad responded, "Well, I suppose we just got to the root of the problem, so I bet we can just leaf it at that."
