I have always been wary of the Lost Ogle’s Monday Morning Tweets feature, and I became more so when their @TLOMMT account started following me. After several weeks of being ignored, I began to breathe a little easier.
Then they picked up on this one:
Just ran afoul of the 1st Law of Rosebush Trimming: "I don't care how hot it is, put on your damn gloves." #scrape

I can only conclude that it was chosen for double-entendre potential:
I don’t know about your esthetician, but when you’re having your rosebush pruned, you should really have her wear gloves. Especially if the wax is hot!
Or were you really talking about flowers?
For some reason, I felt compelled to set the record straight:
@TLOMMT Believe it or not, I was really talking about flowers. (Were I not, and had I been injured, it would have been more interesting.)

In retrospect, this may not have been the wisest move.
