For a racy yet irresistible glassybaby tale read forward. One of our treasured customers is the matriarch of two darling daughters, a 6th grader and a 4th grader. Apparently there is a wise and progressive Seattle way to educate your daughters about the 'birds and the bees.' A course is taught at none other than the preeminent Seattle Children's Hospital. What can make a Mom sleep better than a course like this taught at a medical monolith like that? Here is where glassybaby enters. Mom's 6th grader was poised to attend the class with some family discussion surrounding the event. The 4th grade daughter voiced her vexation at not being allowed to attend the class with her sister. An ensuing exchange with Mom went something like this:
4th grade daughter: 'Mom I know what sex is.'
Mom: 'What do you know about sex?'
4th grade daughter: 'I know...it is when you and Dad go in the bedroom, close the door, play Van Morrison and light glassybaby.'
We have reached new heights. Hilarious story. We have all been laughing and blushing ever since hearing this.
Speaking of girls and glassybaby...Holy Names, a local, lovely, school for girls, had their Junior Prom bathed in the light of glassybaby. 187 kids entered the Grand Ballroom of the Deca Hotel. They entered 'Midnight in Central Park,' created by this stunning mix of glassybaby:
- raspberry sorbet
- toy soldier
- prom dress (of course)
- true blue
- peter pan
- purple haze
By all accounts it was a magical evening and a testament to the fact that glassybaby is in no way ageist. If you are local, come in to the store and we will put 'Midnight in Central Park' together for you. The combination is...wow.
