Brit and I go way back. We used to work together at Intiman Theatre. She designed the bARTer Sauce logo.
We've consumed beers at the same time together. She's the one who got Colin's unfortunate paper mache hedgehog and finally ripped it open to find the surprise inside.
And once, just once, I convinced her to get on stage at a Laffhole show and tell me a story about an item she wanted to trade to bARTer Sauce.
This scarred Brit for life.
Except that backstage in the green room, Brit met Emmett. Emmett had two little paper bag skeleton puppets that he made and also offered up for trade to bARTer Sauce. Well, the audience didn't pick either of them for The Sauce trade.
they ended up trading with each other.
Then, last Halloween, out of the blue, Brit emails me this picture of her, dressed as a paper bag puppet, with each of Emmett's paper bag puppets on her hands -- A SINGLE PARENT PAPER BAG SKELETON PUPPET FAMILY.
I crapped a rainbow I laughed so hard.
And now, Brit has decided to pass on the Single Parent puppet part of the equation (don't ask what will happen to the skeleton kiddies -- I didn't.) to The Sauce.
I love her.
