Dream

"Artwork" by CP


Last night I dreamed I was a father. I was telling my kid that he would probably want to follow people around with a red marker so he could correct their mistakes. I told him he shouldn't do that.

I so should have had children.

That's odd CP. I have kids and I'm always taking markers away from them.

Absolutely, you already have the Pokemon-thing down and you could do a Jiggly Puff lullaby to put them to sleep.

Oh yes...and obviously you'd be responsible too, preventing the lad from following his nitpicky instincts.

My brother has his daughter trained to throw her hands straight up in the air and yell "AMEN BROTHER HALLELUJAH" every time someone finishes saying grace before dinner. I suspect his inlaws are less than amused.

You can borrow my oldest if you'd like practice. She loves correcting people. It's really f'ing obnoxious (and hilarious).

If I did that, I'd run out of ink between my apartment and the subway station.

that would require an awful lot of ink (markers)

I think I know a kid like that already;)

Sounds like a great movie. The artwork has got style. Speaking of which Etienne left you some of his; let's get together in Feb.

Hmmmm. I don't think they make red markers large enough for a fraction of my mistakes.

It sounds like you had a child with me! That's just awesome.

So I shouldn't spit on the sidewalk anymore? You don't have to answer that.

I would need giant bags of markers. People have VERY irritating habits in my corner of the world.

Hmmmmmm. I now understand why you got so upset when I colored IN the lines!
