Squarish Things I've Loved Before
I really liked my last entry, so I will direct you there first, in case you missed it the first time. (Modesty a virtue? P-shaw!)
letter-sized ivory file folders plain, white, unadulterated stacks of new paper miniature playing cards fake credit card inserts in new wallets brushed, stainless steel light switch covers books of all kinds cassette tapes old-school calculators with the high-standing, snap-clicky buttons (they’re usually brown) graham crackers the Fiery One (just kidding!) slices from the middle of a cake photographs brown toast with real butter and a sprinkling of yellow sugar Dubble Bubble (warning: noisy link!) bubble gum Scrabble letter tiles windows blocks of sidewalk colourful, small ceramic tiles for burning incense cones on the toes of my black leather boots fresh, new bars of soap wrapped presents in boxes origami water balloons brand new erasers hip flasks (preferably full of something like rum) sugar cubes address books new condom packages blocks of white cheddar or Canadian havarti my rabbit, Gordon, jammed tightly into a small box (again, just kidding!) dice salt licks (those big cubes of salt that farmers put out for their cows) free-standing wardrobes street signs the huge block of packed snow before you start a snow sculpture the wooden blocks left after trimming the ends of two-by-fours that we would nail together and make into stilts when we were kids docks at the lake old doors with lots of character my two favourite rings actual, made-of-paper mail in the letterbox
Today will be a list day, because I can’t be bothered to write whole paragraphs, and then also because I do so love lists.
