The back story involves the prints I'm making for ErosFestNW. The guy who does my prints did a fantastic job, turning the proofs around in a couple of hours rather than the usual 24. When I was looking at the proofs I jokingly asked him if he needed anything from London. "Tea and crumpets?"
So today I picked up prints (they're wonderful!), and gave him the tea. "Sorry, I tried to find crumpets and failed."
"No problem. What is a crumpet, anyway?"
