Medical Update

My sister sent me the following e-mail:
I read in the newspaper about a new psychiatric diagnosis, generalized anxiety disorder, or "GAD." I think I have extreme generalized anxiety disorder. I'll call it "EGAD." Claire

I've been dreading putting the Christmas tree up this year. Not just the labor of it all, mind you -- but trying to discourage the cat from climbing it. The premonition I get when I think of it just sucks all the comfort and joy out of me.

While in this condition, a light bulb went on in the attic. Eureka! The self-defending Christmas tree! It would come with a reservoir of water in the trunk, motion sensors all around, and a set of misters/spritzers on the lower branches. When an animal gets too close, psst! it gets sprayed!

Whaddya think? Any investment capital out there for this great idea?
