Primroses! PRIMROSES!

Everyone thinks that my primroses are African Violets. I suppose it doesn't really bother me, but I don't understand why the misconception is so common.

No fuzzy leaves.

Some of them are yellow.

It's not like they must come up with a proper name for the things before they reference them. It's very simple to refer to them as "flowers". But instead, people walk by and say "Oh, your African Violets look so nice!" or lean on my desk and say "Can I move the African Violets out of the way for a minute?"

I think I'm testy because I haven't had lunch yet. Pizza was ordered ages ago, but it hasn't arrived.

Food, please.
