They certainly have more nutritional value than flowers.
It’s not like it takes a lot of money. You just need something that says, “Hey, I care.” Even if you kind of mess it up, she may just love you all the more for it—and the whole damn Internet might, too.
An unwitting man has gone viral after mistakenly giving his girlfriend lettuce instead of flowers. Based on the photo, you can see where he went wrong.
The lettuce is purple, which is a color I didn’t know lettuce came in. And it’s kind of beautiful in its own way—not necessarily like flowers, but in an “I appreciate nature” kind of way. Next to the lettuce is a photo of the man, who has such a joyous smile you can’t help but do the same.

The tweet was shared by @JayJailyn and has been retweeted 38,000 times and favorited another 152,000. With that kind of social engagement, we can be sure one or more opportunistic companies will send something their way: flowers, an edible arrangement, maybe even a year’s supply of purple lettuce.

@JayJailyn gonna give him the benefit of the doubt & assume these came from a cart and not in between carrots, cucumbers, & broccoli.

If this doesn’t inspire you to make moves for your sweetheart tonight, nothing will. Just don’t steal his (inadvertent) move.
