I find a book about painting called I Paint the Moon With Glass and I think about giving it to M. B. I open it and there are examples of how to paint various lettering styles and many pictures, in grainy ‘50s Life Magazine-style color, of raw meat and wood. Meat on wooden cutting boards. The center of the book is a two-page spread picture of a cocktail party where there are about a dozen men holding drinks in various pastel-colored suits, wearing bird masks over their heads. Each head is an elaborate and colorful exotic bird's head. There is a caption below the picture. The caption says, "Coffee and cigarettes are most popular for breakfast."
