I am meeting my old friend Sandy after work today. We reconnected a few weeks ago when Leah (for whom I was making the mix tapes) organized an elementary/junior high reunion of sorts.

Five years ago he gave me a stack of CDs with the instruction to give him music. He then dropped off the face of the planet; he moved, changed phones and left his job so his e-mail address was no good anymore. So, since we're back in touch, I figured I'd make good on his request with several mixes (he may in fact be the last person to get a copy of Man of Steel. Since I'm meeting him after work, I used one of the boxes that holds 100 slimline CD cases. He's not getting 100 CDs, but it was the easiest way to transport the discs I am giving him, as the box has a convenient handle.

There was a meeting at work today, and so I ended up being in the office with this vessel. Robyn, one of my co-workers asked, "What's in the box?"

I responded, "Gwyneth Paltrow's head."

I'd been waiting thirteen years to be able to say that.
