If someone is holding flowers, they're probably an author. Authors really love flowers, because they help them think of flowery language they can use to sound smart in their books.
Unfortunately, the author is allergic to flowers. They are only allergic to touching them though, so the author is holding the flowers with a pair of chopsticks (ちょ), really close to their face. Using the chopsticks, they can still use the flowers to think of fancy, author-ly words without touching them.
