It is good that ITIC has declared a dividend on my quilt, whose squares are one-share ITIC certificates and whose filling is shredded Enron certificates. I'll have to count the squares, but by my estimate, I may be able to buy a seal flipper or maybe a pair of seal ears, but not enough to keep him satisfied for more than 11 or 12 seconds. I'll just have to hide my arms behind myself when he's looking my way.
Your mention of the shredded Enron shares has me wondering.
Did those Enron shares, in their pre-shredded days, belong to you, or did you acquire them from the newly destitute people who moved into your neighborhood when they found out they had been deceived by Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling and henchmen? I only hope that you acquired them at no cost and then did Al Gore a favor by recycling them and saving a land fill.
Will the polar bear be able to fit under your "Enron Blankie" or will it be too stifling for him/her?
