my mothers friend leo was a great addition to my life. he taught me many things… to cherish the past, to have tons of friends, to eat and live well, to listen to the ramones, to take lots of pictures, and to have patience.
i guess as a child, leo’s $50/$100 “little christmas” (russian orthodox) presents to my sister and i were torturous. now that i look back, it was to teach us monetary value and patience. i appreciate these now that i’m older.
there are three examples of gifts he hooked us up with… lol
my partner jae pinned this earlier today, which made me think about these gifts.
i remember when my sister and i got the ice cubes, we were trying to melt it, break it, crack it for hours.
and the full sheet of singles lasted less than 4 months, i’m sure of it.
