A package from Anita arrived yesterday! I can tell that Anita is a much nicer person than I. (she is also an English doctoral candidate and I feel compelled to use my very best grammar and the biggest words I know)
A while back, Anita and I engaged in a little Spearfish sock side bet. The thrill of competition got the best of me and I displayed some of my ‘lesser’ character traits.
- I publicly accused her of being evil.
- I wished knitting disasters to befall her.
- I considered purchasing a gris-gris.
I want you to know that I am not proud of this behavior. Evidence suggests that Anita’s mother did a much better job with her than mine did with me.
Our wager was for sock yarn. Look at the bounty Anita sent!
thanks Anita — you’re the best!
and since you are the last person to feed him, you are Mr. Poe’s favorite! he’s easy like that.
If Anita had been the victor, I certainly would have sent her the sock yarn – I am not a squelcher. However, I can’t say that I would have been so gracious and generous.
Anita is a great teacher!
