the winner is:
I had to wait for Crow to wake up. Then I had to wait more while he made his leisurely way to the bathroom to commence his morning ablutions. You know it's a good thing we have 2 bathrooms - well, actually we have 2.5 but the .5 is under the staircase on the other side of our living room. It seemed that using it would be not very private (like peeing on the aspidistra while continuing a conversation) so we filled it with portable shelving and turned it into a cupboard.
Anyway, back to Crow and the further wait while he fluffed his feathers and sipped his espresso. By then I was getting just a little impatient but he's never responded to my enthusiasms, something that's probably been good for for me over the years. Now that he's lit his first Cohiba cigar, for this is Sunday and a special one at that being Father's Day, he's finally ready to pull one of the Origami cranes out of the crystal bowl. The paper birds make rustling sounds as he sifts through them. Now he's finally made his choice which he gives me to unwrap. Ahh! The name written inside in tiny script is: Spartacus.
Happy Father's Day, Spartacus! The O'Hare departure lounge drawing is yours if you want it. Get in touch by the usual method and if Crow isn't available to fly it to you directly I know who is.
