Student or Learner
I would like to know the meaning of stamp in the following sentences:
Years ago, when we were newly-weds, my husband would return from work every Friday with a bouquet of beautiful roses for me. As time flew by, the bouquet size got smaller until there was only a single rose. I passed a sarcastic remark one day by saying: “Honey, I noticed that I get fewer and fewer roses these days – till there’s only the one left for me today.”
“Well, next time you might get only the stamp” he replied with a shy smile.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Thanks for your kind reply.
Is there any meaning like stem/stalk in stamp although I did not see it in dictionaries?
It would make more sense (but not a lot more) to say
“Well, next time you might only get the smell”.
