. . . when real life can be funnier?
On my way back from a trip to Yorktown, I was following a truck with a trailer attached--both truck and trailer were crammed with junk. And suddenly, an object fell or blew off the truck and hurtled toward my windshield. I felt a moment of panic, but kept my head and realized in time, that the object was....
A red plaid sofa cushion.
The car and I are fine. The owner of the sofa's going to be peeved when the truck reaches its destination.
And in my email recently, I found the following missive from Amazon.com:
As someone who has expressed interest in books by Rosemary, Stevens, you might like to know that "Listeria monocytogenes as a biologic vaccine vector against feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) -- Dissertation" is now available. You can order your copy for just $69.99 by following the link below.
Um . . . hey, Amazon? The Rosemary Stevens I know writes mysteries, including a very funny and Agatha award-winning series featuring a Siamese cat as one of the main (though non-speaking) characters . . . and she is quite the cat lover. . . but I think she'd have told me if she was doing a doctorate in veterinary science or feline immunology or whatever.
I'll be passing on this offer. Though I did send it to Rosemary, in the hope it would amuse her.
