Some time ago I was talking to a couple addicts I work with about their addictions. One was pretty hooked on QVC and the other on e-bay. They were telling me what fun it was to have the UPS or FedEx guy show up with "presents." And so was born our little joke that "knock-knock" meant presents for moi. I have never purchased anything from QVC or e-bay but I like presents too. Mine tend to be delivered as well. I just never know when or what I'm getting.
Last week I came home to find this on the door step of my studio.
I immediately took these pictures before I moved it inside. Then I tossed a few thoughts around in my mind about who might have left it. You see, this is not so unusual. It is how my "knock-knocks" come to me. I have the word out that I will consider almost anything someone else wants to get rid of. It's not unusual to be given that option before a piece of furniture is discarded. But there are only a couple people who just leave things in my yard. My first guess was a friend who I thought was out of the country for six months. But, a phone call confirmed I was right. He had gotten back the day before he dropped the chair on my doorstep. Can you beat that for a "knock-knock"? Actually, I can and it works like this.
