Picture frames are so handy. I started by putting posters, paintings, and photos in them. They were great! Soon, though, I discovered other uses for picture frames. I framed a postcard, and it looked lovely and quaint. Then a paper-doll; again, it was lovely. I framed some palimpsest and it looked great. Then a paddle, which also looked very pleasant in its frame. Same for a porcupine, a pirate, and a paradox. Next I think I'll frame Presbyterianism. Or maybe Paris. Or a pneumatic tube. Maybe even a psycho-linguist or a pterodactyl.

The rich are weird, and they waste food a lot.
Mattresses are less expensive when bought in bulk.
Fussiness is a genetically inherited trait.
