Yes, I know this is really brick red. BUT, this is a brick I found on the shore of whatever great lake hits Indiana. I was visiting a friend in Chicago a long while back, and we went walking along the shore of the lake. As you can see, it had been in the water a while - so long that it smoothed out all the edges. I took it, brought it home, and found out that it's great for sloughing off dead skin. So, periodically I used it, and anywhere I've used it, my skin turns PINK. I love it and hope to never lose it.
UPDATED: I was tagged AGAIN - thanks NotFainthearted whose blog I cannot comment on because I don't have an open ID and don't know how to get one. Anyway, I wanted to pick a word that started with a letter that hadn't been used, so here you go: zephyr.
