Orange Tahini Salad Dressing

“Why did you add the flat part to the roof, Dorothy,” my ex- asked.  Well, that view is so spectacular, I wanted a flat plane , a flat part of the roof to sit and gaze out. But I told Jose I was afraid I didn’t have enough money. And he said,”No, Dorothy! We’ll even put a roof on it. Because we use the four posts we have now, and we would’ve roofed that section anyway, so we won’t spend any more in materials! They’re gonna wall on the two back sides, but the front will be open, to sit at a table Carlos (the Shaman’s husband), made me, or the lazy chairs Wilson made me, and maybe have boxes for flowers and such. And a winding staircase to go up to it!
