I wrote it on a slip of paper in the car with a pen that didn't really work. Now I can't find the list, and I can't remember what was on it. I'm sure the fourth item was going to be hilariously funny and/or deeply moving. You'll just have to trust me.
I'm working on some new art to share soon. In the meantime, may the Lord bless you today with either 20/20 vision or stylish eyewear and either obedient children or short term memory loss.
