I'm not sure whether you've noticed or not,
but this year my plants
have really sort of outdone themselves.
I heard you were planning on paying us a visit tonight,
and I was wondering,
I mean, if it's not too presumptuous on my part,
or too much trouble on your part,
do you think maybe you could spare
these particular specimens for a little while longer,
and focus on the sneeze producing blossoms?
