“Don’t switch the blade on the guy in shades.
Don’t masquerade with the guy in shade, oh no-
I can’t believe it.”
This one is for my grandmother; her birthday is august 19th.
She is the cutest, nicest lady and her favorite color is teal. I tried to wrap it in a way that is congruous to her style. I’m happy with it, however simple it may be.
I felt particularly obligated to give her a gift this year. Since I’ve moved away for college, she regularly sends me cards with cute little updates of the goings-on of the family in this harshly slanted classic cursive I can hardly read. I, of course, write her back in my own jagged scrawl. It’s a very simple, though fantastic back and forth.
Something else- upon missing her birthday last year, I was unable to bake her a cake as I had consistently done the previous years. A carrot cake from scratch. I still have a scar on an index finger of mine from grating carrots one year for it. Quite the intimidating war story, let me tell you. This year, I made a point to set up going back to Philly to get that cake to her.
And if i haven’t ranted enough: I recently started growing carrots (for no conscious reason). If that goes well I’ll have to use them for her cake next year. If only I had planted them a bit earlier..
I’m so excited!
