On +Chris Mallory's birthday, the inimitable +Mary C. drew a wonderful portrait of him (http://goo.gl/Nxct1). Always a fan of her attention to detail, I commented on the Squidward coffee mug cartoon Chris was holding. Well, commented, slash, coveted, I suppose. Mary wanted us to arm wrestle, but being as it was Chris' big day (and the fact that youth outweighs geek arms and carpal tunnel) I said that I "wouldst not coveteth his mug… much." Chris, being the uber nice guy he is, offered to let me borrow his mug. Although, now that I think about it, (1) he's in California, and (2) it was a cartoon mug. Okay, definitely putting him on the list for some smarty-pants Photoshop treatment.
Smarty pants aside, I received a package in the mail the other day. When I opened it, there shining through several layers of bubble wrap, I could make out the sour green face of Squidward! There was a note included (see attached pic) which read, "Try your best to enjoy me, but recall the coveted past… someone else holds the other half… this now binds you to whoever this may be. Find the missing piece… make me whole again!"
I surfed over to Chris' stream and, low and behold, he had also received a mysterious Squidward (http://goo.gl/sL9f5)!
My fear by drinking from the mug at lunch (Coneydogs and Monster Rehab, in case you were wondering) is that I have now entered into some bizarre internet spousal contract with Chris. Sigh, the things that happen on G+. So, dear mysterious mugger, unless Chris has partner health insurance, I'm frantically Googling the number for the Pope (or +Vic Gundotra) for some kind of annulment!
But… thanks for the mug!
