*That's what it said. We couldn't smell it through the shrink wrap, but i'll take their word for it. Somebody must've wanted to send some woodsy mail.

***like this one but it had to be about a foot long and weigh half a pound. This thing could've erased enough lead to fill a machine gun.
****a couple of stickers, one of a flower, the other a rocket ship. Safety regulations have made Cracker Jack a lot lamer.

I looked. It was a white ankle sock which neither me nor pips wear. I told him to keep it and start a puppet show.
