5 days from depature: Tasked with a project

by erics1100paces

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.
