A rose by any other name

The other day, I was leaving my apartment and I saw this on the sidewalk:
How lovely! Pink rose petals strewn about on my path. Why, who could have made such a lovely gesture? I couldn't begin to guess but what a beautiful way to begin my day. I'm a romantic at heart and I was truly touched. And such BIG rose petals too! Someone must have tended to them with extra special care in a garden, loving them, nurturing them. Then I examined them closely... 

Nope, not flowers. Ham. Someone dropped a couple of ham slices. Slices of ham strewn about my path. But not as a lovely romantic gesture. Probably by accident. Still, I can't help but be touched. Because I do so enjoy ham.
