Souvenir Hunting

Kevin just sent Paul and me an e-mail firming up the details of how WizBang! will be kept minty-fresh while he is traveling to Nu Yawk and getting settled in. I was reminded that I have a rule whenever a friend of mine goes somewhere on a trip -- they have to bring me back a souvenir. My criteria, however, for acceptable souvenirs are very demanding: the item must be cheap, tacky, and useless. In the past, I have received a rubber Empire State Building, a snow globe, and a plastic lobster, among other junk.

After careful consideration, I have decided exactly exactly what Kevin will owe me for helping maintain the site and cover the convention. And just to make sure he doesn't weasel out of this debt, I am posting my demands here in public.

Within one week of your return home, Kevin, I expect to receive the cheapest, tackiest, most useless thing you can find in New York -- a black-bandanna-wearing anti-Bush protestor. Of course, I will be glad to pay all shipping costs.

Jay, I don't think you know what you are getting yourself into. Take it from me - the plastic lobster didn't eat you out of house and home. Ask for a Kerry Bobblehead, and I'll loan you my pellet gun. Just remember - I'll need it back before long. I'm in Maine, and winter's a'comin.

I like your style, however, I was initially confused by your wording. After reading it several times, I convinced myself that you were not specifying that you wanted a black protester.

Jay Tea:

Interested, duly noted and second hyphen added. My apologies for the implication; it was NOT intended.

Margie, you're presuming I'd FEED said souvenir...
