Bo and his roses

I met this adorable young man on the tram yesterday. I was on my way to look after my grandson for the afternoon. I was busy sending emails, updating facebook, headphones on, oblivious to the outside world, the ins and outs of the tram. Then I smelled this delicious and overwhelming scent of roses. Opposite me, was this boy with a huge bunch of roses. I couldn't help but ask him who the lucky person was going to be to receive these beauties. He said: "my grandmother". I found myself projecting into the future, and hoping that one day my grandson would be carrying a big bunch of sweet scented red roses for me..I felt so priveleged to be sharing this moment with him as we chatted about our iPhones, and Uni, and my grandson, the baby Leroy...
