“my stroller of choice is the graco classic.
it’s the ’70s buick of strollers, bulky with a complete absence of style.
there are no good lines on a graco.

but the luxuries stop there.”

Try a hat.
That is, a hat designed to preserve your favorite tropical treat.
This one’s a two-parter: First, place the silicone cap over the crown (where the bananas connect) to slow the absorption of ethylene gas, which is what causes them to turn brown. Second, place the cute knit hat over the silicone one (they secure with magnets). Unicorn and viking or watermelon and pineapple? The choice is yours. Then, voilà! Bananas stay fresh longer—and look great while doing it. Which means you’ll waste less food and money. Yep, all that from a little hat. Made in California. ($25.00 from Uncommon Goods)

today at the toledo zoo
so many beautiful animals
the birds – stunning
the very curious and friendly woodpecker
hanging on the screen following us around
staring and blinking
so cute and cheery
reaching over to touch it
quickly reminded me
how it got its name
when it pecked my finger
with the memorable touch of
a sewing machine needle/jack hammer
decided right there and then
to just admire each other from afar in the future.
