Black Friday. For me this is a day to do anything but shop. But I’m funny that
half way through our eight week marathon of shows and open houses. So far
everything is going well… mostly.
weekend was a little rough. It started out well enough. I set up for Diane's
open house Saturday. The day was quite, but the weather was nice and the
company good, so no complaints.
Saturday night I
started feeling ill. End up with food poisoning and was up all night wishing
for the end to come and take me. Brian got me some anti-nausea stuff in the
morning, so I was feeling good enough to go back to Diane's Sunday, late
that lives down the road from Diane raises exotic birds. Lloyd (Diane’s
husband) brought a cockatoo over because he was trying to get Diane to let him
buy it and he wanted Diane to see how friendly it was. I went in to meet the
bird and after a few minutes turned to go back outside. The crazy bird
(feathered demon) flew off Lloyd’s arm, landed on my head and bit a hole through
my ear. And not in a location where I can just stick a stud through it and call
it good. Stupid bird (winged hell-spawn) has no fashion sense.
while I'm sitting outside with a towel and some ice on my ear, just to add
insult to injury, an alpaca walked up and bit my boob.
Oddly enough, I didn't notice my stomach bothering me much
after all of that!
So net result; my ear hurts and Lloyd's not getting his
bird. (flying minion of death)
This weekend I’ll be at Singletree Farm in Chino
Valley. I’m hoping for an infinitely less exciting time.
