I’ve been corresponding with a woman from California (KS) for the past couple of days because I’m sending her some Scrollsaw Books.
Here are some strange excerpts from some of the emails:
On Retiring soon:
KS: I need to be prepared for my scroll saw (which is still in the box) (for about 3 months, now).
Me: Your scroll saw’s been in the box for the last three months? I scoff! I bought an $1100 Potter’s Wheel, left it in the box for 4.5 YEARS, used it 3 times, and then sold it for what I paid for it!!! I WIN!!!
KS: Get down on one knee, throw your hands in the air and whisper….SUPER-STARRRRRRR!
On the fact that I have 193 numbered porcelain balls:
KS: (providing ideas on what I should with them) ….or string a few together and wear them around your neck. When people ask what significance the numbers, letters or random word means – just think of stories you could make up. How about a necklace with the word PATHETIC. That should draw some questions. Use common sense, though. I wouldn’t wear the word LOOSE if my cloths didn’t fit because I lost weight. It could get some unsolicited attention.
On the fact that shipping the books to her will be expensive, and I thought she could probably find them at a garage sale for much cheaper.
KS: Aw, heck! Why go to a garage sale when I can sit on my ass and have them delivered?
On asking her if I could put this on my website, or was it an invasion of her privacy:
KS: As I sit here naked, contemplating life….wait! I’m at work – as you said, I have nothing to hide. Feel free.
Anyway, she was giving me grief over tearing up the BadlyDrawn Tiger:
KS: NOW YOU GO GET THOSE PIECES – TAPE THEM BACK TOGETHER AND PUT IT IN THE BOX WITH THE BOOKS!!! TORE IT UP! SHEESH! SOMEONE OUGHT TO SLAP HER A GOOD ONE!
This struck me as too funny an option to pass up. I’ve been desperately trying to find my “Style”, and this could be it – DeConstructed-ReConstructed Art!
