So I've been thinking if I send NO flowers my neglect of any one individual is not personal.

I neglected them.. I neglected them ALL. And not just the popular ones, but the dull ones and the flaptains too!!

Like, totally equal neglect. Which I feel bad about.

There is no way to win at this holiday.
You shouldn't feel like that, teacake. Nobody's perfect. You can't be expected to send things to everyone in the world...and conversely, if people don't get a shout-out from you, they shouldn't take it personally, because you can only do so much sending and talking and all that.

If you take the time to worry that you might be neglecting people, then by definition, you're not actually being neglectful. Because if you really were guilty of neglect, you wouldn't care. You clearly do care.
