|"Deonn & the Blondes" circa 1995|
Part of our routine would be to tell a bunch of blonde jokes. Here's my fave:
Gail (a "natural" blonde): I'm so tired of people picking on me. I'm just as smart as anyone, and I'll prove it! I can name the capital of any state in the USA. Try me.
Me: OK, Gail, but we don't want you to hurt yourself! How about... Wyoming?
Gail: Hmmm, ...uhm..., Oh, I know! "W"!
Then we'd all *palm/forehead* during the laughter. Then she'd say,
Gail: I'll bet you thought I was going to say "Y"! And she'd burst out laughing.
Get it? Y-oming?
OK, I'm wiping my tears from laughter.
Now to the point. My "blondeness" is such that it takes me a while to catch on. But I still get it, maybe five minutes later, maybe the next day, maybe the next decade.
One thing I am catching on to is the use of BIRDS in quilts. A hundred years ago, birds were popular in quilts. Just ask Sandra Starley, quilt appraisor extraordinaire!

So maybe next year, after the trend is over, I'll figure out what "PUT A BIRD ON IT" actually means, then I'll start working on more quilts with birds on them...
