While we were visiting family in St.
- Petersburg, FL, I wanted to go see The Sunken Gardens.
The Sunken Gardens is 4 acres of beautiful botanical gardens that is in the center of St. Petersburg, FL. The entire time we were in the Sunken Gardens, my husband was complaining. He complained about the heat and asked if there was anywhere he could get out of the sun. Soon, he was complaining about being hungry and how there weren’t any excellent restaurants in the gardens. When he complained about how much he had to pay to come into the gardens, they should have served champagne. He then told me he had enough, and he was ready to go home. When we got back to the house, I went to the bedroom and slammed the door, while he sat in the kitchen with a glass of wine. My daughter asked me what was wrong, and I told her father said the Sunken Gardens were just okay. She shrugged and asked me if that was it. She thought the Sunken Gardens were just okay, too. I rolled my eyes and showed her out the door. I loved the Sunken Gardens, but that didn’t mean everyone had to love it. I knew my husband wasn’t a flower lover, but he didn’t need to voice it so loudly. My daughter crossed her arms and told me she thought I owed her father an apology. By the time I got downstairs, my husband had another glass of wine sitting next to him. He apologized first and told me would be much nicer the next time, but we needed to come in the winter when it was so hot his brain was frying. I had to laugh at him.
