The boy brought home some art projects tonight and saved me with this fine Rooster. The assignment was to create an animal using No. 2 pencils. I asked him why he chose a Rooster:
“Because we used to have a rooster and because I thought it would look good using pencils.”
Over the years at their current school, we rarely see art projects until the end of the year and usually most disappear before they even get home. So when the kids do show up with something there is great celebration.
He saved me because I’ve been busy with a couple side projects and with my own ‘dumminess.’ (I spent last evening working on a drawing/painting thing that got a little too tricky and crashed the Corel Painter program…without me ever having saved at any point. I know I know I know…but when I get in the flow I sometimes put that stuff off…and then pay the price.)
