Meet Rose. She’s just the sweetest thing you ever did meet, and cute as a button, but she’s dumber than a post. Rose is from a tiny town in Minnesota called St. Olaf. Rose learned many valuable life lessons growing up, and one of her favorite pastimes is recounting them to her best friends. Some of our favorites: “You can lead a herring to water but you have to walk really fast or he’ll die”. “Norwegians are notoriously bad at Spanish.” “It’s like we say in St. Olaf - Christmas without fruitcake is like St. Sigmund’s Day without the headless boy.”
Typically these lessons and parables have nothing whatsoever to do with the topic of conversation but Rose has her own version of wisdom that we’d all do well to try and interpret. Her favorite song is “Every Rose Has it’s Thorn” by the great Poison.
