Finishing up our work at a trade show in San Diego, my co-worker Maureen and I decided to go sightseeing across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. While there, we went shopping and bought a few pieces of clay kitchenware.
As we crossed back into the United States, a customs official asked if we had anything of value to report.

My creator is a mystery,
One that’s set in stone.
My origins, my history,
Still totally unknown.
Tests of time I’ve had to face,
My strength and my endurance
Cause of weakness; it’s your race,
But I’m free of all life currents.
Was I a calendar, a tomb, a shrine?
We’ve all wondered it before.
We don’t know… but I’m a wonder!
I can tell you that for sure.
What am I?
