one million ways to clean up the neighborhood


I am anxious to find a larger project in this vein but for now I'm very excited about how this is turning out.



Today I fulfilled my monthslong desire to become a mason of soaps, laying up the bricks with a bucket of water and a painters brush. A ladder and a blue jumpsuit helped me look official enough to discourage most people's curiosity as I mended the holes in the brick wall.

Two ladies on smoking break: What are you doing? (accusatory tone)
Soap Mason: Just putting these soaps here in these holes. (nervous they might have power to stop me)
tlosb: what?
sm: Just mending the wall with soaps. See, they're like bricks.
tlosb: oh....(continue smoking ten minutes)
