5 days from depature: Tasked with a project
My aging father just called. He wants that I bring him an object from China. The exact nature of the object is not specified.
Maybe 15 years ago, I brought my folks back a plate from Russia. It’s a nice plate. Anyhow, my dad wishes me to replicate this experience, and to bring them back something nice. Not a plate, mind you, but something like a plate, something antique-ish, or handmade…
This is the sort of thing that I half-ass, or dismiss and forget. Well, this was that sort of thing, because liquor required all my spare time.
Now, however, I plan to do a good job and find something they’ll like.
