My lilacs are late.  We had another cold snap.  The big lilac just started blooming yesterday, very hesitantly.

Weirdly, my roses started blooming ahead of the lilacs.

I don't know how to respond to that. It's so off-base. You awful, awful person.

I know.  I'm sorry.  Really I should get rid of the lilacs and plant more hydrangeas.

No, don't.  That's very wrong.

Is it bad if I can't tell a lilac from a hydrangea?

I am able to identify roses and tumbleweeds.

<edit> I have examined photographs by means of the internets.  Lilacs are better.

My grandmother loved hydrangeas.  But, then again, my grandmother died.

They smell divine. Lilacs, not photographs.

Unless they are scratch and sniff.

Did she die on the day you were supposed to give your last presentation in speech class?

Got it, scratch and sniff lilacs are stinky.

Every photograph is scratch-and-sniff if you adjust your aesthetics accordingly.

Nobody wants to help Newbie understand the prejudices against for-profit schools?

I can explain it again, but I can't understand it for you.
