A Fun-break!

Posted by Dirck on 8 May, 2014

I’ve had my nose down pretty consistently, and I’m at it today again, but I thought a little diversion might be in order.

A riddle, then– what is this:

Hint: "Ceci n'est nes pas une pipe" is looking in the right direction, but not quite far enough along.

Hint: “Ceci n’est nes pas une pipe” is looking in the right direction, but not quite far enough along.

The answer after the status update.  I think you’ll find it surprising!  Now, the update:

WHAT: First draft of short story  “Yard Light”.

HOW MUCH: 5½ pages of manuscript.

HOW LONG: About 30 min. (due to fun-break)

Are you ready for the revelation?  Have you written down your guess?

It’s–  not a postage stamp!  And yet, it was in the place of a stamp on an envelope which arrived at The Regular Job today.  I’m assuming it’s something in the line of an Easter seal, some kind of semi-useful fund-raising item.  As to how it managed to trick its way through the postal system, I suspect that the response of the front-line workers to the care and consideration Canada Post is getting from the current government is, when not simply curled up in a corner and weeping, a certain amount of shouting, “Good enough!” at whatever the task in hand is.  I don’t blame them.

Today’s pen: Waterman Ligne 60
Today’s ink: Jentle blue-black
