Question:

Do you know where the small

glass pitcher is?

(I put the fresh coriander in it)

I use it for making coffee every

day and I don’t want to use a substitute

pitcher so do you think you could

Move the Coriander

(and why did you buy

Coriander Any Way)

 

Answer:

When I went to the farmer’s market

yesterday morning to buy chicken feet so I could

make chicken soup the weather was bad and the

chicken man decided to stay home.  He lives

in Upstate New York and once he told me

even though he lives in the country he doesn’t

much like driving.  I saw a new Japanese vendor

selling coriander so I bought some.

Without a recipe or any other

clear intention.  At home I thought

coriander might look good in the small glass pitcher.

 

Question:

Can you put it somewhere else?

Answer:

I suppose yes.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.

  1. I admire people that can remember jokes. For me? Not so easy. But coming out of a riveting shower this morning, to the score of Man of La Mancha, Sancho said, after a brawl with is wife, “Whether the stone hits the pitcher or the pitcher hits the stone it’s gonna be bad for the pitcher.” I’m so glad you two worked it out. I’m so proud of you both.
