Like I-Spy But Better
As some of you may have noted, I sent 4-by-5-and-a-half-inch thank you notes. Guess what doesn’t fit in 4-by-5-and-a-half-inch envelopes? 4-by-6 photos. So after ordering my photos and discovering this fact of life the hard way, I resorted to cutting a half inch off of every photo. A little embarrassing, yes. My brightest moment? Indeed not.
I sent some to my cousin Amy, who I knew would find humor in my mistake. And guess what I got in the mail? A beautiful collage of all the photo edges! Grisha and I can affectionately identify the parent-photo of each strip by memory, making the piece a wonderful summary of our wedding day.
I spy four noses, two bare forearms, a belt loop.
Two ears, an apron, the edge of a flower.
My armpit, a wine glass, a crooked window.
A tubist, green exit, and the word split.
