Pickle Plea December 7, 2013

I don’t remember how many years ago Helen made pickle ornaments for one or two blog friends, and I don’t remember for sure who those bloggers were. I was envious. I wanted one.

But because I haven’t put up a tree in four years, I forgot about it until recently—and it’s a little late to be asking for a pickle this year.

Helen commented on my recent post that “An ugly pickle would look even uglier beside these beauties.” I’m not sure if she’s downplaying the pickle generally or perhaps excited at the enhancement of ugliness, which could really showcase the piece.

Either way, I hope that before next year’s Christmas season, Helen might send me a pickle ornament. As incentive, I will attach here a photo of my BFF Buddy Gigi putting a pickle on my head in April.

I like the way you think; I never even considered the “enhancement of ugliness” angle, but am now inspired to pull out my circular knitting needles and gherkin-coloured wool.

And I love the picture! I am sorry I never got one of my nephews trying to perform brain surgery with a pickle.

I haven’t decorated my tree yet, but I’m looking forward to becoming reacquainted with Helen’s pickle again.
