Objects of Desire
My friend, Maria at Bodhi Toys (and now Box Lunch!), gave me a groovy felt ball yesterday to give to Arthur, which I did, begrudgingly. I want it. The thing is made from layers and layers of felt, is a perfect, smooth circle, and actually has a bit of bounce to it. Plus, there are these little tentacle arms growing out of one side that make it look like a sea anemone. Or something. I covet it.
Although I think Arthur was initially confused by the fact that there was a tennis-ball-sized thing in the house (his regular balls are all relegated outside), now he won't give it up, and there's no chance I can swipe it for myself.
No chance at all.
