Antiquing, Part III


I started "antiquing" a few years ago. I decided that as I get older, I should do things that old people do. I have added this to my list a lot earlier than other things, like using a donut to sit on or riding a chair up the stairs.

Let's just hope, when you open the Silent Butler, there's no silent-but-deadly fart in it. 


But if someone did deliver a nice loaf of silent-but-deadly in their silent butler, you could just place it in this here: a Smell Urn. What? It's a small urn? I don't think so. That A looks like an E to me. Plus, I like the idea of an urn that you would put potpourri in. Or silent-but-deadlies.
