The Art of Hedging One’s Bets

Zack Peterson is a high school senior in Holmen, Wisconsin, just north of La Crosse, and he showed up on Tuesday with 625 long-stem roses, so he could give one to every girl in school. All of the girls lined up in one of the hallways to get a rose from him, and he got a LOT of hugs in return.  Some of them even CRIED.

He wanted it to be a surprise, so he didn’t even tell his sister, who’s a sophomore.  He used a bunch of air fresheners to mask the smell in their house.

He says he ordered the flowers in bulk through Sam’s Club, and it cost him about $450.  Then he spent eight hours over the weekend trimming each rose, and making sure they were all perfect before he handed them out.


This dude is smooth, smart, and should be able to get at least one or two dates out of the deal. BRILLIANT
