My grandma's 80th b-day bash, I mean brunch, is in a few weeks and so today I made my submission to her gift. The "Voice Quilt" is basically a cleverly-marketed message machine where everyone calls in to leave a "memory" then the audio is put into a jewelry box so that, every time you open the lid, you hear something like "Well hello there Minnie. Happy 80th from Dick, the only brother you have left on God's green earth.
I, of course, had to wait to be the last person to record so that I could ensure my submission was better than everyone else's. I hope my grandma appreciates the gift...rumor out of West Virginia has it that she could care less about her birthday. She is more interested in planning a trip to Miami for my 30th because she heard there will be celebrities there. Ha!
