My birthday is in May, and so recently Mama Shakes asked me to make a list of anything I might want or need for my birthday. Because I have a mind like a steel sieve, her request immediately fell right out, so she emailed me this morning with a reminder:
"Don't forget to send me a birthday list. If you don't send me one, I'm getting you The Collector's Edition of the Wit and Wisdom of Dick Cheney. If I buy you the whole set—Volumes 1-815—it comes with a free shotgun and box of bird shot. Did I mention that George W. wrote the introduction and Karl Rove added amusing commentary at the end of each chapter? Unfortunately, Harry Whittington chose not to participate in the project for some reason."
