This actually happened today. I was genuinely impressed by the large books my middle child was picking out, then I laughed at myself when I saw the boys were using the books to build ramps for their pull-back toy cars.
In other news, I decided to try out "flesh limbs" instead of stick limbs. Why the change? Have a seat while I tell you my life story.
I'm a perfectionist. You wouldn't guess it by looking at the state of my house, or the way I dress (think cross between frump and awkward). But my perfectionism comes out in other ways. For years it kept me from drawing comics until about two years ago, and I was like, "NO MORE perfectionist self, your comics do NOT need to be perfectly illustrated!" The name of my comic, "Low Expectations" helps with that too. Anyway, drawing the comic figures with stick arms and legs made producing my comics so much more easier. Someone said they reminded him of insect legs. That's okay David, we are all entitled to our opinion. And no, audience, I did not chance the appearance of my comics from my friend's constructive criticism, I did it because I drew a cartoon figure and liked what it looked like with "fleshly" arms and legs. So here we are, progressing. Having fun. And most importantly of all, laughing at myself.

I was out shopping with my kids the other day when we walked past a person-of-unusual appearance. My youngest yelled out "MOM! LOOK AT THAT CREEPY PERSON!" and after I looked about me in horror I realized no one else understood him. Phew!
