Meet the Wistful Purse and the Wistful Belt. They have been hanging off a tree since 1977, in a lovely book called Macramé Enchantment. But they are not enchanted! They are wistful. Full of wist! Longing for all the good times they used to have back inside the house, lying on the couch watching a little TV, having a snack or two, maybe even getting worn out to a few parties.
And now? They are full of nothing! They’re all hung up. And if you think they’re unhappy, just imagine what that tree must be feeling. You just know that all the other trees are laughing their heads off at this.
