He loves me, he loves me not

I woke up with my son giving me chamomile which grow outside our cabin. So I got to take a picture with it right away. (Hence the messy hair and puffy eyes. I haven’t even wash my face yet πŸ˜‚) This brought back some silly memories of the past.

Did anyone else pluck an innocent daisy flower (chamomile or this flower family) to get an answer if the person you’re crushing on feels the same?

The poor flower suffers from people’s craziness. Sigh. And one of those people happens to be me.

Yep. That’s right. I’m daisy-plucking-crazy-teen-girl.

Every time I had a crush back in my school days, I have a habit of guessing if my crush likes me back by pulling the nearest daisy or similar flowers. And when it ends badly, I’ll take another and another until the result is the way I want it. Sometimes ending up with all the petals on the ground and no more flowers to pluck by the time I make my escape.

Looking back, I can only laugh and wonder what the hell was the point?

Poor flowers.

How about you? Any teenage habit every time you get a crush?

  1. Wow, it took me up until this point in life -and by reading your blog- that I found out that a daisy flower and chamomile are one and the same thing.

    I did not know that.

    When I got my email notification that you had posted and they mentioned the first two sentences of the post in the email, I was going to ask you, is that the same flower from which they make chamomile tea?

    Then when you started talking about plucking petals and going “Loves me, loves me not”, I was thinking, “Hey that’s what we used to do with daisy flowers in Canada when we were school kids.”

    Then I took another look at the picture and thought, “Hey, that flower looks like a daisy.”

    Then when I re-read the post a second time and you talked about daisy flower and the chamomile family, I made the Sherlock Holmesian deduction that daisy flower and chamomile must be one and the same thing.

    I did not know that until now.

    I guess one really does discover something new every day.

    I just did.

    1. My head spin in your comment. πŸ˜„ I had to do a quick math and even think if they are in the same family because we don’t make daisy tea haha… but you’re right. They are. Margarita is my biggest victims though 😁

      1. πŸ˜‚ the flower. The drink is good too… instantly make me see flowers in my dream land πŸ˜„

  2. ha ha haπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You have a very good time passing activity, if I was there, I’ll pluck it all and say damn she loves me, who the hell is this flower to tell me she is or she is not πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ I hardly had patience during my teenage, now it’s different, like what? I have a patience to complete plucking all petals from one flower, and then πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œI lose patience again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Something’s Never change πŸ˜…πŸ˜„

    1. I don’t consider it a good way to pass time anymore because my gosh, I was cruel to the flowers. As you said how can flower tell me if someone loves me back. I’m imagining alien pulling my hair strand one at a time because of game πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜’

      1. ha ha ha πŸ˜„ those are our childhood fun, it is still fun, and that’s how we learned Navy things πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‰ Aliens pulling hair πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ a good imagination. I imagine Aliens have already crossed planet earth and they themselves self quarantined in fear of corona now πŸ˜„πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œ

    1. I think this post was inspired by a post I read from you long time ago I just didn’t feel inspired to complete it until my 3 year old gifted me the flower πŸ˜„

      1. ah, you made me go back and look. I found a post I wrote about using a magic 8 ball to ask myself such questions. you’ve got a good memory – I’d completely forgotten about that post… πŸ™‚

  3. Hahahaha, first of all I wish my hair could be like yours when I wake up πŸ€ͺ Is just perfect 😍
    Second, your son is way too sweet 😍 He found a wonderful way to wake you up 🌸
    And finally, yes, I used to do the same…hahaha…silly teenage girls and poor flowers πŸ€ͺ🌸

    1. Stubborn asian hair that refuse anything. It only wants to stay straight even when I curl it. But thanks Ribby 😍
      Haha yeah, Orion often surprise me with little things. Although, he’s sometimes killing the flowers with kindness. He waters them right after the rain because they’re thirsty πŸ˜„πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜‚
      When we were teens we were desperate for any hope even a false promise of a flower πŸ˜‚

      1. Believe me that after more than 7 years living in Singapore I envy the straight hair πŸ€ͺ
        Mine is not straight, is also not curly, just a little bit and with this humidity is always frizzy πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ so for me every day is a bad hair day πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ
        He’s very sweet and kind 😍 Just like his mom 😍
        Yes, what a life when we’re teenagers πŸ€ͺ It seemed everything a struggle…we did not know how is to be adult πŸ€ͺ

      2. Ah… you’re spoiling me Ribby πŸ’ž
        But, wow… now I feel guilty calling my new wake up hair messy. πŸ˜” If it’s a comfort I used to envy my cousin’s hair. We did argue a lot who got the nicest hair because I wanted hers, and I feel like she was insulting me. She looks good with frizzy hair. πŸ˜„

      3. Hahaha…I think we always want what we don’t have πŸ€ͺ If I would have straight hair I would want it curly, if I would have it curly I would want it straight….at least this is me πŸ€ͺ But for now I really envy straight hair…you know, people are made for the environment they live…here all have straight hair and is perfect for the weather, here is always hot and they don’t sweat….that’s pretty amazing πŸ˜‰

      4. hahaha πŸ˜€ True! We always seem to aim for the opposite haha πŸ˜€
        I’m struggling to sweat too it’s one of the reason I always faint back in the Philippines.πŸ₯΅

    1. Really? Well, I have seen pretty wild hairstyles in catwalks πŸ˜„
      But thanks Nour. I guess I’m lucky to get a pretty stubborn hair. It refuse anything but be straight. Unless necessary I don’t comb even after shower, but this style also mean I can barely do anything else. When I curl my hair, I’m feel lucky if stays for 2 hours before going straight again.

      1. Wow. I can’t brush my hair unless I shower and even then it’s hell. It gets tangled really quickly :c even when I straighten it…it doesn’t stay for a whole day πŸ˜‚

      2. We got the opposite problem. When I want to fix myself I don’t want it straight πŸ˜‚
        I don’t know if your hair is curly but I always find hair that isn’t straight more beautiful than mine πŸ˜„
