So. It is usually common, but is unusual in its current state. It was once alive. A lively fauna. But now it is quiet and delicate, softish, and small enough to hold in one hand. And no, it is NOT an albino smurf!
It is not from the sea. It is not fur or feather. Or eggshell or bone. It is not insect or amphibian. It is not toothy, and was not puked up by an owl. It is not of rodent persuasion.
I am awaiting its arrival. More specifically, I am holding my breath until it passes through Customs.
It's coming from Texas. That doesn't matter, but thank you Texas, all the same.
