5 the hermes 3000

my family loves questing. just wake up on a saturday morning with a Brilliant Vision and say one word to my dad- "typewriter," for instance- and instantly he's off, conducting so thorough a research of vintage typewriters that within ten minutes he is qualified to pillage the inventory of ebay, emerging victorious with the absolute perfect minty green one. meet hermes:



i've never before come home to a boy sitting on my stoop but, i have to say, a girl could get used to this...


ps. no, i did not name him. and, should you ever have cause to refer to him aloud, please, for the love of all that is holy, say it the french way and not as though it rhymes with herpes.

So Hermes the Courier, the Celestial Messenger is equated with a papulating virus. This makes me very ho hum.

I'm rather disappointed that Hermes is a typewriter and not a magnificent scarf.
