did kabuki succumb?
So you say to yourself, 'big whoop kabuki - tell us something else of little or no importance. ok I will - kabuki can crack his toes. spooky - no? But bac kto the matter at hand. kabuki accidentally went shopping, and whilst browsing in the local thrift store came upon this item. In the original box, with all associated paperwork. A nebbish man came over as kabuki inspected said item. He whipped out his smart phone and attempted to discern its provenance, to kabuki's great consternation. (what a lovely sentence construct) not to be outdone kabuki produced his iphone and immediately went to the design website, then informed the small man of the important data associated with said object. Man said to me 'I could have looked that up on my pc at home'. kabuki said 'meh', and wandered away to peruse other items. kabuki could not shake the little man, and kabuki made polite conversation, including the possibility of buying thrift store items and selling them on ebay for profit. A risky business to be sure. kabuki informed small man the kabuki might consider selling above pictured ceramic on ebay, after all it is a christmas 2011 release, and it is only January 2012. The market is surely not flooded with such a unique and delightful knick-knack. At this point we (kabuki and the nebbish stranger) were joined in our conversation by the goodwill manager. 'That just came in today, its very expensive. The lady who dropped it off said she had received two of them". kabuki knew this to be a bold-faced lie from some wealthy yet tasteless palm springs biddy. (she also dropped off a matched set of DREAMY table lamps) Anyways, after convincing the small man that he was not going to get kabuki's number, kabuki purchased the object d'art. Am kabuki mad? Has my noodle gone soft? What is to become of kabuki? Mind you, it was less than 20% of retail, yet kabuki may still have to nibble on it for sustenance when the budget collapses later this month. Felix would call it 'a shopping blackout', kabuki just calls it a heart-felt purchase. Here it is on my coffee table, it may yet end up on ebay, so tell me dear reader - What the hell have I done?
