April 1 (or) July 26 2006 Unpublished art
eBay item number: 6266526947
This is rather embarassing. A package arrived yesterday with that suspicious odor of "art inside." I love that odor. I did not recognize the name on the return address, so I did not have a clue about which auction it must have been. I opened it up and had a stunning WTF? moment.
"Didn't I buy these a looooong time ago?"
Nothing on eBay... nothing in the PayPal register...
Turned out I was not looking back far enough.
I won this back on April 1... and because the academic timescale makes the geological timescale look rather sprinty, that might as well have been an epoch or two ago.
The seller never sent the art. I never noticed. And yesterday I got a lovely little surprise in the mail.
I tell you, this nearing 50 business is for the birds.
Right, well... was I saying something...?
