I drove by a flower shop yesterday with the following sign: “If your name is James, come in for a free flower!” I thought of three possible explanations:
1. Romantic intrigue – The girl at the flowershop met this incredible guy named James but neglected to get his phone number. She is hoping that fate will provide for a romantic reunion.
2. Owner narcissism – The owner of the shop’s name is James. He thinks that he totally rocks and wants to make nice to other Jameses.
3. Clever marketing – The shop changes the name on the sign each day in hopes of bringing new people in for flower orders.
What do your imaginations cook up?
