My love is like a rose...

Perhaps it is a sign that one has been in school too long, that one is overtired, or that one is simply crazy, when it seems appropriate to kiss someone and then compare them to a flower. You might think, "Aw, that's so romantic!" Especially when the plant is a rose.

However, it is quite another thing to tell a man that his face is like an invasive plant.

Perhaps telling someone who hasn't shaved in a couple of days, "Your face is thorny. Your face is like Rosa multiflora!", is a clear indication of madness. Or at least overwhelming nerd-dom. Especially since common names were not employed; the statement included a freaking LATIN BINOMIAL.

Not that I know anyone who does this...
