Man elicits smiles with random flower gifts

Even though it may have been done as a study on human behavior or as stunt to post on YouTube, a Boston man's Valentine's Day activity made more than a few unsuspecting women smile.

Instead of buying a large bouquet of red roses for one special woman to mark the holiday, T.K. Skenderian decided to buy 30 and randomly hand them out to the first 30 women he saw.

Skenderian, who documented the project on video tape and posted it online, called the project "Roses @ Random 2011."

"It's fun to do nice things," he said before beginning the hand-out.

Both women and young girls received the random flower gifts, with most of them smiling and happily accepting the blossoms as Skenderian wished them a Happy Valentine's Day.

"I just hope it makes people happy and at the same time might inspire people to bring a few other smiles out," he told the Boston Globe.

Experts say he may be onto something. A recent Rutgers University study found that flowers have an immediate impact on mood. In the study, researchers found that every person who received fresh flowers was excited.
