A TALE OF TEE-SHIRTS AND POTTERY
Once upon a time there was a blogger named Lime, who had a bizarre fascination with tie dye. She met another blogger named Gawpo, who liked to play in the mud, that is to say he made beautiful pottery. She proposed a swap of tie dye for pottery, because she really digs pottery. He readily agreed.
Then she waited. Gawpo disappeared from blogland because he was busy working crazy amounts of overtime. Then she saw pictures of more of his pottery and heard about a new kiln. Then Gawpo engaged in great amounts of self-flagellation over not having sent a bit of pottery. Lime was not overly worried though she was hoping for a fun little delivery sometime before the next Limelet graduated high school. Gawpo got busy growing a beard and loosing a bunch of weight and hunting wild asparagus and playing on Facebook.
Gawpo sent pictures of when he got busy making mugs. Lime got very excited when he said one was just for her.
Gawpo asked for her mailing address about 3 times because he kept loosing it. He engaged in more self-flagellation. Lime gave her address again and reassured him he was still an uber groovy friend because he is and she likes him like the Academy likes Sally Field. He's a fascinating, smart, kind, talented, funny as all get out friend, which more than offsets his odd phobia of post offices. She began to tremble in excitement when she got a picture of Gawpo and her mug actually at the post office.
