The Coconut, Redux

A few weeks ago my brother asked me for my husband's new contact information. I thought nothing of it, figuring that he was just updating his so-called Rolodex.

Yesterday, I got the following email from my husband:

A box addressed to me in T's handwriting arrived at my office today. It contains our old friend from Key Largo, the well-traveled, well-decorated Cocos Nucifera.

Wearing a red Christmas watch-cap.



Hmm. The mind reels with possibility. Any suggestions as to its next appearance?

I love this friggin' coconut. And all decked out in its Christmas finery....

Oh, I just love this. How about a Valentine's coconut, bearing a lovely gift of truffles.

That is awesome.

Nice work, T!

Someday you should hide it inside a Halloween jack-o-lantern. (That's a long time to wait though.)

A New Year's coconut, perhaps, with a diaper and a clock?

the coconut is great!

we used to pass around a partridge family album at christmas. i think my former brother-in-law threw it away.

Given that this keeps reappearing, maybe sending it out for Groundhog Day would be appropriate. Though Cinco de Mayo does offer nice sartorial options...

Do you trust me enough to send the coconut here and allow me to have a crack at it? I'd be honored to decorate it and then send it on for you...

I love these games! We have a q-tip dispenser (don't ask) that makes the rounds of the family. It is SO damn fun!!!

You never know... the coconut might just get a hankerin' for corned beef and cabbage at your brother'
s house around March 17th...
I'm still waiting to see where Monsieur Penguin turns up next.
