so my beloved says to me:
Last night my beloved chocolate cupcake says to me:
"Why is there clay all over my hair dryer????"
You would think the answer to that is OBVIOUS.
You see below some of the things I was finishing yesterday. A teapot on a teapot, and a pair of Irish coffee cups with elephants on the base. I was making these at Cornell and a young woman from China was chatting with me and trying to figure out what the heck I was doing.
"You know, they're for coffee of tea. Or very specifically, Irish coffee."
Blank look on her face (she reads this blog regularly, as a matter of fact)
"Irish coffee is coffee and whiskey. Maybe a little cream."
Blank and puzzled look.
"The Irish like whiskey."
