Ok, you bunch of demanding complainers. Here is a blog post.
JAW Fan has found the ideal retirement community for me. Who needs NDG when I can live at this corner. It's life sustaining!
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
After a very long dry spell, here is an email exchange between your humble blogger and Fancy Feast.
Background: you may or may not remember that just before he departed on his cross-country trip almost a year ago to the day, FF purchased a 4-foot tall wooden African mask at a garage sale. Because of its size, of course, he could not take it on the road, so it stayed here. He also left behind a large bag of his personal papers. I weighed the bag: 15 pounds.
So today I receive this:
FF: Say, would it be too much to ask that you mail me my wooden mask?
Me: Yes, it would be too much to ask. The thing is almost as tall as I am.
You'll need to pick it up or have somebody pick it up for you. There's also a big bag of your personal papers to go with it. (Notice how I now have zero tolerance for his bull)
FF: I'm pretty sure you can get a postal service to pick it up as is. You don't even need to put it in a box.
(Notice how he completely ignored what I said and answered as if I had said yes and had not even mentioned the big bag o'papers)
I did not respond. It would only escalate and then he would tell me I'm a bad friend for not sending him two African masks.
