A while back the flower guy at our local grocery store tipped me off that the tuberoses always come in on Thursdays. They are one of my favorite flowers, and I love having them in the house whenever I can; they make everything smell like a warm, tropical evening. So I'm always excited when I need to go to the store on a Thursday, because it means I can buy a bunch and I know they will last me.
