"Wow you're all poppied out" says the teen
I thought she just noticed I had once again had to buy another poppy as the 100th one had fallen off like its predecessors
"Another one fell off" I said
"You're wearing two" she says gesturing to both poppies on my jacket.
Turns out I couldn't see the original poppy as my chins were in the way.
My flubber, the veterans gain.
Grateful for the senior members of my family who served their country and thankfully did not lose their lives doing so.
Lest we forget those that did.
