Warm-Up Exercise 003: C


C is for Cabinet Nesters. These wee trinkets are secreted in cabinet drawers, beneath your last pair of stockings, in the right pocket of forgotten trousers, or in the lining of your second-favorite cap. They are as smooth as marble and as light as cotton; intricate alabaster statues of the true love that might once have been and now never will be. On the base is inscribed the reason for the loss. Cabinet nesters cause sweaty madness and brain decay among those unlucky enough to read that inscription. It is unknown whose hand crafts them.
