Buying Flowers on the Hottest Day of the Year

The day started like any other day, however, it was in the start of the August heat wave. Unfortunately, my father called me and told me that a family member was in the hospital.

He suggested that I call to arrange a flower delivery to the hospital, however I decided to use my web powers to accomplish the task.

I didn’t know the name of the hospital, but I knew my cousin’s hospital telephone number. I then open up a browser to a search engine site and then typed in “hospital ###-####” meaning the first 6 numbers of telephone number. The results produced the name of the hospital. I then called the hospital main line to confirm that that relative was a patient in there and her room number.

With that information, I then set off to find the nearest florist to the hospital. I then used the same method I used to find the hospital to find the flower shop. This time I put in “flower shop” and the zip code. I then found 3 flower shops in the area.

I ordered online early in the morning, and she had the flowers by the afternoon.
