A few years back, my husband and I went through a funny Peruvian phase. We wanted to decorate with pan flutes and miniature llamas and brightly colored woven yarn sculptures. We bought a CD from those Peruvian dudes that always have their table set up next to the Space Needle. We also bought some Peruvian doodads from a some other Peruvian guys' table at the Houston Science Museum. I frequently imagined my whole house covered in decor from Cost Plus and went completely coo coo for cocoa puffs over any sort of llama art. Sometimes I wore a Peruvian crocheted hat.
I have never been to Peru.
Neither has my husband.
I'm not sure either of us will ever go there in our lifetimes.
I doubt it.
We got over the Peruvian thing, but we still have one pan flute hanging in the bedroom. Just to remember.
My husband and I were having an intense and profound conversation about the consequences of substituting the word SHMOO for the words "...
