You know, I grew up under the shadow of mad cow disease. Spent most of my childhood banned from having gummy bears because my mother was suspicious of gelatin. I’m still not allowed to donate blood because of my proximity to beef of questionable quality. I think that’s lifelong, actually.
I’m not entirely sure I am immune to tetanus, since my last vaccination went directly into a vein and then I started barfing everywhere.
I am regularly exposed to lizard bodily fluids and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gives me salmonella.
I just caught cat butt disease from a filthy hole in the wall and then spent a few days worrying about whether I also have rabies.
I’m an organ donor.
May god have mercy on whatever poor chump thinks my organs are an upgrade.
Things don’t taste as salty as they should.
Is it because I’ve been drinking so much tea?
There is a decent sized iguana in the neighborhood. Not a six-foot adult with all the frills and spikes, but green and maybe four feet long, with a body the size of my shoe. It pooped next to my mom’s car.
Today we found it in our backyard, clinging desperately to the netting at the top of the cat fence while the cats watched it with fascination and horror.
We opened the gate and it ran away.

Coptic may work or you can use something ribbon–larger surface means more surface tension when tying everything together. But whatever you use, that looks cool as hell.
Ribbon? But yeah it is so cool looking. It has a golden shimmer to it in the light, and I got it under weird circumstances, so it’s already awesome.

Tying bows with twine would probably work?
I dunno, I think that would be a pretty wobbly solution. I’ve been looking up Coptic binding, and I think I might give it a shot?
