Me: Have you any peonies or are they all finished?
Florist #1: They're all finished, I'm afraid.
Me: Oh, I've completely missed them this year, what a shame...
Florist #1: Mind you, they're so expensive - and they don't last at all you know.... (to Florist#2) This lady was just asking about peonies.
Florist #2: Oh yes, we haven't got any in, but they're still about. And much cheaper too. And they're lasting so much better nowadays.....
Me (looking bemusedly from one to the other): Oh... um.... thank you?
