Stupid things I own, vol. 12

That is fucked up.

When I was little, my older brother dragged me to the house of his girlfriend. While he and the little slut did God-knows-what, I watched TV and looked at all kinds of similar knick knacks that were scattered around the house.

In the years that followed, I've imagined that some of those items were dildos or used for smoking marijuana.

I don't know if that's true or not, but it's a good story.

Come answer my meme thingy today. :)

I own a strap on and yes O'Brien I will change my avatar just for you. I searched long, hard, and deep for that one.

The girl red thing seems to be very unimpressed with the boy red thing, which is why the boy red thing seems really bummed out.

The soup can, on the other hand, seems looks like he's gonna steal the girl red thing right in front of the boy red thing, the bastard!

I think they are cute!

Okay, here's the story. These were the primary part of a decorative wind-chime. They were strung on hemp-style cording and tiny bells hung from their feet.

They are supposed to be Adam and Eve.

My grandmother bought the set at some art show and it hung in her apartment for as long as I could remember. I kept it when she died.

One of the bells broke, so I salvaged Adam and Eve. They sit on my windowsill and remind me of Gram Soos.

"(c) 1969 Pacific Stoneware Inc. U. S.A." is etched on both their backs.

Thanks for everyone's comments.

Took me a minute, but I got it! I see her now.

Adam looks a little strung-out, and Eve looks like she just rolled in from a busy night during Fleet Week.

But, the soup's nice.

MERK! said...

Adam sure looks sad.
