I'd choose the Rolex. Then I would sell it & give you a cakeshop & a book contract.
I'm that kind of friend.
I REALLY want to go see Cai Guo-Qiang's show at the Guggenheim. (If I called it "The Gugge" would that be like how Jewish women call Bloomingdales "Bloomies"? Do other people besides Jewish women from Brooklyn call it Bloomies? I only know my family. Let's go to Bloomies.)
On January 18, 2008, a team consisting of the artist Cai Guo-Qiang, members of his studio, full-time staff, and temporary installation crews of the Guggenheim Museum’s Curatorial, Art Services and Preparations, Registrar, Conservation, Fabrications, Construction, Multimedia, Lighting, and Exhibition Management departments began the month-long installation of Cai Guo-Qiang: I Want to Believe. The images here represent the technically challenging task of installing three of the exhibition’s works: Borrowing Your Enemy’s Arrows (1998), a suspended fishing boat pierced with approximately 3,000 arrows; Head On (2006), an arc of 99 life-size replicas of wolves that appear to be leaping head on into a glass wall; and Inopportune: Stage One (2004), a series of nine cars, some of which are suspended from the top of the museum’s rotunda.

Who's coming with me? You? Good.
I went to Barnes & Noble the other day. These books were very close to each other on display. You have to guess which one is actually a children's book and which one is actually for grown-ups:
C) Well, This is definitely part of the cover for the children's book.
I went with a co-worker to get his niece a gift. So I found myself looking at the new kid books. I was taking a close up of this cover and the woman next to me bumped into me as she reached for a stuffed animal. She apologized and said, "Sorry, Im in your way." and I was like, "No, sorry, you're just reaching for a duck toy, I'm the grownup in the kids section taking photos. Sorry..." And then I scurried away.
