“….there’s a bird on it”

You ever notice how quiet book stores are?

I mean compared to say, Target.

Why is that?

Well there I was at one of my favorite places on the planet, Island Books on Mercer Island, browsing cards ( after selecting my monthly book treat!) and I started reading cards by my new favorite human, Erin Smith. I AM a grown up, I do know how to stifle a laugh…but I can’t with her cards. I burst out laughing so loud I disrupted all those quiet browsers in the New Fiction section. I mean, snorting, tears running down my cheeks laughing…it was great. I finally just had to buy a bunch and rush them home so I could go full out silly without bothering anyone.

Two of my contributions to the “put a bird on it” movement…enjoy!
