I brought some cut lilies home from the supermarket, snipped off the ends, and popped them in a vase of water.
By the next morning they had gone from lily buds to huge, blooming lilies. I was quite pleased.
In the process they sucked up the entire vase of water. While I carried the vase to the sink, I buried my face in the bouquet and whispered, "You were thirsty, weren't you? Here's some more water."
Then I did other things for three hours.
Then I went to the bathroom, glanced in the mirror, and saw this:
It had been so long since I nuzzled the lilies that it took me a full minute to diagnose myself with Facial Lily Pollen.
It only took half a minute when it happened again with the next bunch of lilies.
