No, it’s not one of Portland, Oregon’s, pet names, it’s that weird machine you used to see at zoos and fairs.

I watched one make a bluish-grey (I think it was a) penguin for me at a zoo many eons ago, back when phones had rotary dials and there was only one flavor of potato chips in the vending machine. I can still recall the bizarre scent of the hot, waxy liquid filling the mold.

I made another machine flatten a penny and stamp something into it. I don’t remember what it was and I don’t have either one of these items anymore, the end result wasn’t the point. I still have the memory and that was why you did it.
