Okay I’m withdrawing from you already.
But I’ve finally got my books sorted:
1: Housekeeping – Marylyn Robinson
2: Day of the Triffids – John Wyndham
3: Bliss – Peter Carey
1: Third/Sisters/lovers – Big Star
2: Berlin – Lou Reed
3: Sail Away – Randy Newman
I’m still struggling with my three sentimental items. But I’ve narrowed it down to:
1: Small bear with the ripped crotch I’ve had since I was wee. His name is Kangi by the way.
2: Paint faded Rubber duck given to me by my Godmother in England.
3: My Father’s watch.
4: A photo copy of my Mother’s breakfast recipes.
5: Those little Japanese goodluck bird charms you got me last week.
So can I take all five? I mean I can wear my dad’s watch and claim my mother’s recipes as a means of surviving Californian cooking.
And I’m really looking forward to see what you’ve gotten me from your house as three items. Thanks for making the choice for me.
God, get back here soon before I start thinking you’re here when you’re not.
I swear I just saw you looking through my paltry tinting collection.
PS Plus I hate to admit it but I just had a five minute pretend conversation with you and got caught my mother. She found it most amusing.
