I got a text message from Vodka last week.
This is not unusual. We text a lot.
This particular message had the basics: she misses me, how is my life, we need to get together...
It also gave the interesting update that she loves her new job in Berkeley, but that the heater in her office building is broken.
The poor thing is freezing.
(Not to mention the fact that she has to take BART into work, and BART stations and trains are COLD!)
She needed wrist warmers. So, I obliged! (Actually, this was my ultimate frisbee project.)
We decided on olive green, since it goes with just about every other color. It wouldn't show BART dirt and grime as much as some colors. And finally, it just seems to be a good serviceable color that won't fade out! Why else is it used in so many military uniforms?
Depending on how this pair works out for her, and how soon they fix the heat at her work, I may be making more!
