What keeps us coming back?
Christopher Davis. Artist, comedian, actor, stellar human being, and wonderful friend. The kids and I are huge fans. I am unofficially a member of his entourage. As soon as he gets discovered and starts raking in millions, I'm going to be one of his moochers/hangers-on/employees. Fingers crossed that he won't expect me to do any actual work.

Now we have several of his tiny, adorable sculptures of the platypus. I'm obsessed with the platypus. He's so sweet and calm and simple, a symbol of peace in a messy, stupid-head world. That's right, Earth. I called you a stupid-head.
So today the kids bought me belated birthday gifts at BTREE FLEA. How did they do this? They demanded my money, I handed it over, they bought the gifts, I said "Thank you."
(It reminded me of something my brother and I always say to each other. It goes like this:
School bully: GIVE ME YO' LUNCH MONEY!
Victim (in small voice): But I don't have any.
Bully: OK, fine, here's a dollar....NOW GIVE IT BACK!)
This is the platypus I got today. He's holding a four-leaf clover.
I also bought this from another artist who was there.
If you get the chance to support the fabulous artists of Birmingham, you should.
If you get the chance to meet Christopher Davis, you should ask for his autograph. He's the bee's knees.
