They say you can never forget your first love, your first kiss, your first break up and your first valentine.
I too vividly remember mine. My client was doing a promotional activity for his brand on Valentine’s day and the excited account executive that I was I kept telling everyone to give flowers to all the girls in the office. While everyone received Orchids and Lillyams, I got a huge cauliflower! The boys in office decided to play a prank on me and gifted me with a huge cauliflower instead of flowers! The cauliflower ended up in my mom’s kitchen and subsequently on our dinner table.
After that, how many ever Roses and Lillyams I received over the years – the cauliflower continued to hold a very special place in my heart!
