Andrew came home with a very large, very heavy package and lots of excitement.
"What's in the box?"
"Someone sent this to me from Barrow--look!"
"Hmmm . . . a whale bone. So what are you going to do with it?"
"I'll keep it here."
"Really? Where did you plan on putting it?"
"Oh I don't know . . . maybe on the mantel."
"Right. [pause] How about your office? Wouldn't that be a great piece for your office, something that just screams Alaska executive?"
"Well I'm going to bleach it first."
"Bleach it? With what?"
"Bleach. To make it white."
"Yes, I'm aware of what bleach does, I'm just picturing you with a bottle of Clorox and a whale bone the size of a Mini Cooper."
"I'll let you know how it goes."
