I opened a Christmas card from kind reader kegbo, and pulled out a card with this note stuck to the front:
I peeled the note off the front of the card and started laughing so hard my husband had to make sure I was okay. Because...
wait for it...
those are some impressive pears!!!!
Tears, people! TEARS streaming down my face. Because not only are those some impressive "pears," especially relative to the size of the partridge (*snort*), but check out kegbo's coloring. It's stunning. This is an absolutely gorgeous card in every way.
But it has pears.
And I laughed like an early-adolescent school girl.
We English majors have such dirty minds.
"On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...."
Thank you, kegbo. You made a week of stress and craziness a whole lot funnier.
And now we will return to our regular, mature programming....
PS I really have had a crazy week (mostly good, with a little plumbing problem thrown in just to remind me I'm not in control of anything), and I haven't been able to stamp at all. I'm hoping the next few days give me a chance to regroup and use some of my new goodies that are patiently awaiting ink.
