My 31-year-old cousin rob is a tatted-up organic farmer living in Asheville, North Carolina — home to the World Naked Bike Riders, as you can see to the left — and I see him about, oh, twice a year: for Christmas and the family beach vacation at Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
At our most recent reunion, I bestowed upon him a tube of Sophyto's Mega Omegas Day Face Moisturizing Cream ($45),
a small token from my "bourgeois bohemian" life in New York City that I wasn't quite sure he would actually end up using.
To my surprise, I received this e-mail from him just the other day:
i had to mispell the subject cuz i couldnt bear the thought of actually titling a msg abt lotion. but alas here i am raving about the face cream you gave me. i thought since you were enjoying the gift I gave you, that i might try, also to enjoy your gift. It didnt make me break out and swear to god, today one of my friends told me my skin looked really good. so thanks for metrosexualizing my farming ass.
