Oh Jia, this is perfect and exquisite and just what I needed on this grey-white Canadian prairie day. Bless your Michigander heart and your understanding of winter, and hurray for Rita Dove.
Jia, you are the best. That is all.
Pretty sure there's no way to embalm hot tea with milk and hot buttered toast, but that's what I'm having in the afterlife.
Oh, the ending. How perfect.
Your generosity in the face of Reading Comprehension Fails and misplaced rage is inspiring. I wish you didn't have to marshall that level of patience, but I'm glad that you make the effort.
That was absurd and delightful, Jia. And somehow also really scary....
Well, that tops today's list of things unexpected. I had doubts, but with Jia behind the helm I knew it'd go somewhere promising.
