A Perfectly Squiffy Jag

Well here goes...

I didn't really have the right materials on hand to wrap a brick patio paver, unfortunately, so I made due with what I had: an old wrinkled paper bag found in my garage, some metal used for tying pipes together and a whole lot of duct tape. It's not very elegant looking but how the fuck else am I supposed to wrap a ten pound chunk of stone inside five minutes?

Wait. Perhaps it's a bad message to give a girl a huge rock on the second date? Too late now.

I'm off! Wish me luck.

You see, its things like that little bubble/hearty thingy above your 'i' that make people think you're gay. =)

Beats my friend's advice of sending a pig heart in a manila envelope.

Quite honestly I like this idea a lot more, in general, but in this case the brick had more relevence to the girl. In the abstract, though, I think the pigs heart wins out hands down.

:D Awww... that's terribly sweet. ... I think.

I hope she likes it, anyway. It'll definitely make an impression!

That is lovely packaging, though the type could use some work.

Frankly, I expected more from you, Jeremy. ;)

Good luck tonight (even though you've already left)!

What are you talking about? The type was the best part! Charcoal and all.

I'm picking out a thermos for you, not an ordinary thermos for you...

if a guy gave me a rock on a second date it would totally get him 10,000,000 bonus points. at least.

but i'm weird (and a former geology major), so there you go.

oh, dear heavens, please let us know how it went! (assuming, and rightly so [I hope], that you're not home yet!)

Replying three years late. Apparently it went well.

Well, at least it's not going through her window.

That was the plan. Turned out I was too weak to chuck it up to the second floor window, so I had to go with an alternate plan.
