Why the unicorn?

Pat said...

T-man could do horoscopes!

tillerman said...

Oops Andrew. I didn't mean to reveal so much about my intimate thoughts. #22 should read, "I wish I owned one of those things that other people don't have either."

EVK4 said...

Oh man, if I did this list I would just have 1 though I might repeat it 25 times to satisfy the contractual terms.

1. I wish I were Tillerman.
25. I wish I were Tillerman.

You rock.

JP said...

Ah so true, really could relate to some of those. Don't open up too much Tillerman!

O Docker said...

Wow, it's just so deep that there are two number 10's on this list and no number 12.

Is it a denial of the zodiac and a consequent affirmation of science and reason, or is it the 12 months of the year you're defying to pass - a subtle challenge to your own mortality?

Or are you protesting the 12 regattas you have to win to get a free North Sails hat?

Your complexity just overwhelms me.

tillerman said...

Oh shit. Now O Docker has discovered that I have a superstition about the number 12. I didn't mean to reveal that. I am mortified.

I have a deep seated desire to buy you a unicorn but it won't fit on your laser (and it would be hard to find a pfd for it).

tillerman said...

Please don't mention the unicorn. It's a deeply personal matter and I shouldn't have made it public. It's not fair to the unicorn.

tillerman said...

Oh, please don't pry into my relationship with Brassica Oleracea. It's become very complicated lately ever since my doctor... No, I mustn't go there. Much too personal.
