I also picked up a fabulously distressed 1954 Webster's Dictionary. It used to be owned by, get this, EMEROY ZINK. What a fantastic name! The name alone is worth what I paid for the book! It has a wonderful, sweet musty smell that reminds me of my grandmother's home.
When my mom and I were out, (I can't believe I am telling you this) we had lunch at Pizzeria Uno's . T (my 14 month old) got milk in a cup. It had a plastic lid with the spot for the straw. Well I put my pinky in it to show her, and I got it stuck. Yep. Stuck. It was the type with the sharp plastic points. I was laughing so hard at my stupidity I couldn't breathe! The waitress said she couldn't wait to tell everyone what one of customers did. OUCH. I did finally get it off. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. My finger hurt, but my soul felt pretty good.
