Good Friends Will Shoot You If You Ask Them

I have a running list of things if I'm ever witnessed doing, saying or wearing, my good friends are instructed to shoot me, immediately. Some of the items are standards like wearing dark pantyhose with white shoes or sporting lycra bike shorts for purposes other than bike riding. Others include purchasing tickets to see Engelbert Humperdinck, hanging a Valentine's Day wreath on my front door, collecting tole painted saw blades...you get the idea.

I'm usually moved to add items after witnessing examples firsthand. Sunday, while at the fabulous Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire, I was forced to add a new item. Actually, I didn't just add it. I put it at the top of the list. Thankfully, Carol was there to take note. For those of you who weren't there, but want to keep track:

1. If I ever take my teeny tiny pet bird (oh,yeah, I said bird) on an outing to anywhere...well, you know the drill.
