step two



if, while shopping at the aforementioned thrift store, you happen onto a lime green bowl- buy it. you are practically required by law to buy it. there's also a law that states you must fill said bowl with fresh lemons. because it's january and the law is very clear when it comes to people up against january.

p.s. you might also scrape off a bit of lemon peel and rub it between your finger tips. you might also dab a bit of it behind your ears. you might feel silly but you would only be doing what must be done.

  13. it is a requirement to purchase that bowl. also, it is illegal in three counties in nebraska to walk by such an item and not at least touch it.

  14. I believe that's a Bauer Pottery bowl... not only an excellent purchase (chartreuse!) but also a wise investment (collectable!).
