So Bekah’s little post in the “spouting off” category has drawn nearly 100 comments, which is a record here at Femina. I’m trying to think of an appropriate prize for her if she gets to 100….any ideas? All I can think of is a gift my sister-in-law (who was living in Istanbul at the time) sent one Christmas. The whole extended family was assembled on Christmas Eve to open gifts. My mother-in-law opened hers, and it was a dark velvet tea cozy tastefully embellished with gold embroidery. Without a moment’s hesitation, my brother-in-law popped it up on his head (it looked just the shape of a bishop’s hat) and burst outÂ singing “I Come to the Garden Alone.” Memorable.
I had not the slightest notion Bekah would draw so much fire for her observations about Canterbury, especially since the world-wide web is such a big place. But apparently it’s a small world after all. Kudos to Bekah! What ever shall we have her spout off about next? The Vatican?
