Chinese New Year

February 6 is the start of the Chinese New Year, the year of the Monkey.

Last year was the Year of the Horse

I wonder how many check blanks I will screw up writing ‘Horse’ this year.

Dragon Scales

On a recent trip to China, I bought some incredibly rare dragon scales and brought them home for my wife.

“Ooh, they’re beautiful!” she cooed in wonder. “What are they?”

“They’re dragon scales,” I replied. “They’re very rare.”

“What are they for?” she asked, staring at them with interest.

“Weighing dragons,” I answered.
