I got the best birthday present from Alex Dodd. If you'r dying of curiousity, here's some hints:
-it's cleverly named, referring to both its function and a grammatical use
-three letters: G.O.B.
-I am in love with it
-they are obscenely expensive
-they are commonly mocked
-there are safety precautions necessary
-the dream I had about flying last night was perhaps prompted by excitement and anticipation about the gift
The dream gift will be revealed on Monday when I return to Cold Lake.
