Ode to Geometric Shapes
I don't like circles. I like square things. I am delighted with square dinner plates especially, square cut necklines, square glasses frames, and square gemstones. Squares are just the top of the pile though--I like geometric shapes, period. (I do not consider circles or spheres to be geometric.) I once went on a trip with my family where the sole object I purchased was a paperweight. It doesn't even have the name of the location on it (and, consequently, I can't remember where I got it. Some giant outdoor amphitheater carved into a mountain were we saw a musical). This paperweight is a tetradecagon, or a 14 sided stone polygon. Apparently, James Blunt also shares my love of geometric figures. He sings about it on sesame street. I hope you enjoy it:) It's not quite up as far as "Would you like to buy an O," but still worth seeing.
