A Lesson from Steve Martin ... Cause and Effect

photo by Jan Siebold

1.  Went to hear Steve Martin speak at University of Buffalo.  His message ... originality!
2.  Heard about his new CD with Edie Brickell ... Love Has Come for You.
3.  Ordered CD from Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System.
4.  Received CD.  Liked it a lot.  Decided to buy a copy.
5.  Read CD liner notes.  In the notes for the song "King of Boys", saw a reference to book called A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor.
6.  Looked up MacGregor book in Buffalo and Erie County Public Library catalog.  Found entry.
7.  Saw an entry directly above for a book subtitled 100 Objects Inserted and Ingested in Places They Shouldn't Be by Rich Draben.
8.  Learned ways to avoid major physical discomfort, injury and possible death from Draben book.  Thank you Steve Martin!
