With the help of a few friends and some creative engineering the pulley-system is finally up and running. Meg and I have been wanting to do this since last summer because we are always calling each other saying, "hey, can I borrow your..." or "I have something to show you!" Now instead of having to walk to the other apartment (which may take a whole minute) we can just send special things from one kitchen window to the other. And it makes me SO ridiculously happy to walk down the sidewalk and look up and see that string between our buildings! So funny.
Some of the things that Meaghan sent to me: jellybeans, oatmeal-raisin cookies, and corn muffin mix! I sent her a pie crust mix, a postcard, and popcorn.
It's a given that we'll have to send notes back-and-forth written on pretty paper and clothes-pinned to the string.
