Got out my teapot for the first time in a while. It was, in fact, the first time since the stupid ex who wanted to be friends changed his mind and stopped talking to me. As a result, it caused somewhat more emotional response than a teapot normally does.
See, this is a teapot that I painted about five, six months ago. It's all gray and blue and has swirly patterns and I'm very proud of the way it turned out. I was on the fence on whether to paint a teapot or a kokeshi doll piggy bank sort of thing, and what pushed me onto the teapot side was that he liked teapots.
Ever since I got it back from being fired I wanted to show it to him. It was pretty, and I thought he'd like it. Maybe say something like, "Gosh, that's a cool teapot. Let's make some tea in it." It's rather too late now. Can't show somebody a teapot if you never see them.
Though... I could just send him a picture of the thing. "I know we aren't friends anymore, but I never showed you that teapot I told you about. This is it. Goodbye forever again."
The idea is more appealing than I would think. But... I have a feeling that it might be a bad idea, emotionally speaking. I'd be holding onto the attachment, or something. I'm not sure.
If you're reading this, and I'm sure you aren't, whadayya think?
