hmm.....It is probably a good thing he wasn't visiting me while I was glazing 20 burlesque chickens and a million flowers. Most of my work is once fired so all the glazing is done at the greenware stage which is extremely fragile and prone to breakage. Things were pretty dicey, especially after too little sleep, too much coffee and a wee bit of stress.
It was like a war zone out there, f-bombs dropping all over the place and I had no control what so ever!! I even threw in a few new words that seemed to add to the whole experience. I am sure that Joe wouldn't have been really impressed with my skills, but sometimes you really need the proper vocabulary for the situation. I think I nailed it. Happy birthday Joe!!
