Fun with flowers

Remember the petunias Master J got for my birthday Friday? He and I were out on the patio admiring the beautiful flowers in their pots and here's how it went...

M: So these are really beautiful petunias, I like them a lot.
MJ: Petunias?
M: Yea, that's what kind of flowers they are.
MJ: I thought they were annuals.
M: Well, they are annuals.
MJ: They are?
M: Yup. Do you know what that means?
MJ: Not really.
M: That means they need to be replaced annually, which means every year.
MJ: Then shouldn't they be called "die-ers?"
M: You're so funny.
MJ: I know.
