Does it Matter How We Say It? Why Not Limes?

why flowers?






why can't we give limes?
I mean I can't picture myself giving someone a bunch of bananas - or a bag of popcorn. I love bringing big bouquets of flowers to friends fresh picked from my garden. Home-made cookies. I have been known to give herbs to fellow cooks.

so why not limes?  ( or a jar of marbles, or seaglass or...)  

I shop at Asian markets most of the time. I went with my son Todd and his wife Ravy after a fab Korean lunch yesterday. Limes were 8 for $1.00. I bought 32. Mangoes, a Pineapple (.99 each), Fuji apples, Nectarines, Peaches, Oranges, Strawberries = $16.00. I made my stuffy nosed hubby a big fruit salad. Autumn and Spice like apple cores and strawberry ends.
Today I brought in a basket full of limes to the main office of the high school I work in.
next time..... when I go to a friend's

why not give...
I mean why do there have to be rules?
I would like a balloon - wouldn't you?
Love, Jenn
