When Your Boyfriend’s Gesture of Love is Literally Healthy
Our hearts are schmaltzy with this gesture of love from a Texas guy, who apparently gave his girlfriend a truly memorable gift. Jailyn posted on her Twitter account that her boyfriend surprised her with what he thought were flowers, but were actually vegetables. Now, who’s ever going to forget that?
A Healthy Gesture of Love
The couple has been dating for nearly a year, and Jamarcus was super excited to give Jailyn flowers. But, to his surprise, instead of giving her a bouquet of flowers, he brought her a bunch of purple lettuce (or purple kale).
According to Jailyn, here’s how the big surprise went off:
“I was sleeping and he woke me up by knocking on my window. I went to go open the door and he had the lettuce in his hand with a big smile. I just started laughing so much. After, I hugged and kissed him. He didn’t [know] what it was until I told him it was lettuce. My mom was right by the door and she was laughing, too, but she also thought it was cute.”
Jailyn shared a photo of the health gift that Jamarcus gave her, and the romantic blunder immediately went viral.
Jamarcus was confused about the hullabaloo, to say the least. When Jailyn described her boyfriend’s reaction, she says
“He was lost and he was laughing so much because he really thought it was a flower from a fruit. He got it from his job at a warehouse. He didn’t know any better but to think it was a flower, but that’s what made it really funny.”
Fortunately for Jamarcus, the Internet has been kind to him. Majority of the comments found this gesture of love still cute, thoughtful, and a much-appreciated reminder to eat healthy food (vegetables!) to keep the love alive.
