I just got back from my local Habitat for Humanity Restore, where I was pretending that this week of sickness hadn't happened by looking for windows to use when we build the chicken coop... I didn't find any windows, but I found something else. Something I couldn't leave the store without.
Has that ever happened to you? You're not quite sure what you'll do with it, but you see it and you can't stop thinking about it. This song is playing in your head... "loooovin' yoooouu, is easy 'cause you're beautiful..." (Interesting tidbit: did you know that the late Minnie Riperton is Maya Rudolph's mom?)
I digress. I saw this giant piece of rusty aqua-colored metal as tall as I am, and I knew it must be mine. My precious.
How lucky am I? I didn't even knew I needed a rusty tailgate... but I did. And I love it. Love love love love love it.
