Possum Pins

Possum was looking over my shoulder today as I was on Pinterest and spotted this:

I knew I was doomed.

It's a Sicilian painted wagon, my ancestors' version of the bicycle rickshaw.* And it goes almost without saying that Possum will be talking incessantly about how much he wants and deserves one of these for weeks and months to come. I might as well get used to it now. It is better than having him sulk in silence, which is much harder to bear.

Unfortunately Possy has nothing to hope for — not because I'd mind driving him around Boston in that rig, but because I didn't buy even one PowerBall ticket for the $900 million drawing tonight. If no one wins and the pot goes over $1 billion, I will reconsider for Possum's sake. And I will let him pick the numbers, of course.

  1. I saw that photo and thought Possum must be posting on his own..

    If I win the powerball Poss, I will buy you a rickshaw.. and somewhere for you to store it.
