Oprah spent her 59th birthday in bed after the celebrity talk show host injured her back while lifting a present from her friend Tyler Perry, UPI reported.

What was the gift, you might ask? A box of books, a large cake, a statue?

Nope, a flower arrangement.

Fortunately, the injury wasn’t serious and Oprah was back on her feet the next day. 

Perry clearly feels terrible, though, and wrote on Facebook that he would send Oprah a single rose next year.

Oprah would be wise to maintain the correct posture when picking up gifts next time.
