But I wanted to share an origami letter/envelope right quick. I made this for a certain Geometry teacher. Isn't the paper neat? I can't help myself:
Q. What did the oak say to the math teacher? Or is it an acorn talking to a tree? No! It's the tree getting smug with an acorn. Yes, that's it.
A. Gee, I'm a tree! If it's a Texas live oak, the answer would be:
Gee, ahm a tree! The Texas accent sounds better, yup?
Gently pulled apart, it reveals itself . . .
Fully separated . . . Two halves do make a great whole.
Reconnect after you've written your letter . . .
And simply add a wax seal to ensure the two halves stay joined during travel. I'd also use an address label on the reverse side for the same reason. The recipient simply needs to slice through the label and carefully remove half the seal to read their lovely letter.
And another thing. I cannot tell a joke to save myself. Most go over my head, but last night JC and I were finishing up dinner, and a rerun of "The Closer" was on. Brenda Lee had done her thing and was on her way to her car, when some sleazy bad guy stopped to yank her chain. He asked if she ever smoked after sex.
Well, no skin off my nose since I didn't know I needed a quarter to buy a clue, so I kept doing what I was doing: rinsing my plate with an eye on the tv--Then, Brenda Lee looked him dead in the eye and said, "Well, I wouldn't know if I smoke after sex 'cause I never look." JC guffawed at the exact same time I jerked my head around in disbelief, like it was a swivel bobble head, and nearly wrenched a neck muscle. Not because I was offended, but 'cause I got what she meant, and it wasn't even a joke. :D (No offense intended, so I hope none was taken. I am just relating a revelation--an epiphany of sorts on my part. And thank you for your time.)
