These bloggy “thank yous” are usually used to rank on someone who wronged the blogger. But this is a genuine thank-you to someone who made my day.
I’m assuming you’ve all been over to Crappy Pictures at some point, as she is the funnier, artsier, and more popular Me. Some things are just best described by pictures, so I am going to rip off her style here.

But the other day at a store a lady saw me and my triangles walk past and said:
She’s the only one who got it right.
(That’s why she gets the pretty mouth and eyelashes.)
