Maybe it's the way your Doctor wrote that excuse. There's no excuse for poor penmanship.

Everybody keeps telling me I have small handwriting, but I just don’t see it.

If you can't feed the homeless, give the manatee.

If you don’t spay and neuter your pet cats you could get a ticket for littering.

My cat's litter was cleaned by my cat when they were born: three healthy kittens.

(All adopted out to good forever homes, I'm glad to report.)

Lost money playing poker with one of the big cats at the zoo. Think he was a cheetah.

I have mixed feelings about my time as a Michael Jackson impersonator. One one hand, I got to wear a cool sparkly glove. On the other hand, I didnít.

With fruit, like blueberries, or plain? Help me out here; I'm waffling over this decision.

I'm not sure if he would like to Bee one, especially if he has to stand on a bee.

Especially with that comb-over!

A word about Bee decks: they are the most honest deck you can ever play with. I've done sleight-of-hand, card sharping, bottom and second dealing, and so on; and I've done it with other card cheats and sharps, using a variety of decks. All agree that a Bee deck, with its diamondbacks, is the most difficult deck to cheat with.

The thought of that gives me hives.

Spoons: I had a close friend and coworker who was a sleight-of-hand artist, specializing in coins and cards. He agreed with you about Bee decks.

My parrot, RIP, suffered a long illness. I feel guilty, but I have to admit, when he finally died it was a real weight off my shoulder.

Arrrr - righty then!

Panache: Yes, Bee decks are pretty much the only ones I will play with, for the reason I stated, and your friend confirmed. I have a couple of dozen Bee decks, in various stages of playability.
