"I make flowers out of napkins. No tape, no glue, no wire. It’s just a hobby that has turned into a business." He told me all about his business World Paper Flowers and how he uses Japanese Ikebana techniques in his flower making. "Oh I love them. What’s your name?"
"World. Arnold World."
"Oh, wow, I thought your business name was just referring to the fact that you’ve been all over."
"Nope. You know, only 2% of black slaves that were brought to America kept their names? I am in that 2%. I’m a 9th generation World."
