My friend J, who I haven't seen in a bazillion years because she lives in VT and I don't, sent me a package yesterday. I couldn't imagine what would be in it, and when I opened it, this is what I found:
You're like, "Your friend J sent your girls a Supercute doll? She's so cool!" And you're right (J's always been cool). But here's the thing. It's not just that she sent this doll to us - it's because she kept this doll. For 15 years! The doll that I made and, AND the little poem I wrote to go with it, which I think is actually some of my best work (click on the little picture and read it - seriously), and then she sent it back to me. I miss J! She always made me feel cool. Apparently she still can.
(This post kind of goes with this other post. I promise that I intend to tell you how really soon. I need time to just sit and write, which I should get this weekend and will try to take advantage...)
