In 2008 on a particularly stressful day, Tarzan and I went to Goodwill instead of attend another Perot quarterly time to RIF meeting.
While there we laughed our way through the books when one of us had the brilliant idea to buy the books with titles that amused us and delivery to everyone's desk. Then one of us had the idea to write inscriptions with forged signatures in the front (in retrospect I'm sure this had to have been his idea ).
For months our co-workers speculated on where the books came from while amused or befuddled. One of us (and I'm sure this too was probably him) broke down and declared we were the culprit.
I forgot how much thus activity amused me until today when I was at the Thrift Box in San Jose.
Damn thst my suitcase was full because all of my loved ones would have seen this humor for Christmas (CEM - how to live with a neurotic dog was already visualized in your stocking)
Very rarely do we get to travel to the same city during the week. Odd circumstances changed the week where we are both overnight in San Francisco. We took advantage of being in our favorite city by going to our favorite restaurant.
This election season the ads entertained us more than usual. This one below got prime location on the fridge (folded so we can see the sad face every time we walk by and one of us says "this is how you make me feel")
Two weeks post election she still sadly looks at us (I'm still not even sure what the flyer was for). Because feelings are important.
My dad has a foot/shoe problem. He has a collection of shoes from every city he visits where often the old pair will get left behind: often as a social experiment to see who or what collects them,
Last week in LA I was done with these hiking shoes (bought for the Budapest trip). I took them off and walked away. Tarzan said, "you realize you are walking in downtown LA without shoes". Yup, when you are done you are done.
I love you dad (and PS it was the most interesting case to watch as group after group walking by making up their own story of why they were placed there )
