Give them the onion

Do you want to be remembered? Don’t be predictable.

We have an expression among our circle of friends: give them the onion, make them cry.

While a flower is nice and multiple flowers are even nicer, it is common. There is nothing special about the flowers. Sure you went to the florist, picked out the arrangement they would like and opened up your wallet to purchase them but anyone can do this. It isn’t remarkable. No one remembers anyone by being ordinary.

Que the onion. The onion is so random, so spontaneous; they can’t help to ask “Why did you give me an onion?”

You have them hooked. Now you can tell a story. Any story will work. Those who bring onions will be remembered.
