Trashy Shorts: Thinking About Doing Twilight Today

This picture came across my Facebook feed—courtesy of my mother, of course—a couple of weeks ago.


Because that’s what I find myself thinking when my kids have FINALLY closed their eyes for a quick nap after we’ve spent 25 hours swimming at the public pool in the blazing hot sun.  I find myself thinking—Hey, I’ve got 30 minutes or so.  Why don’t I just nip on over to the junkyard and salvage a few book-sized bricks?

And then I’ll just paint them up really quickly to look all Little Women and Hunger Games. (I’m a very diverse reader.) 

Yes!  Yes, that’s what I’ll do!  In those few precious moments before my very rambunctious boys wake up and I have to start on dinner!

Holy shit that is not at ALL what I find myself thinking. 

It’s more like, I know she’s my mom and all, but that woman is on the verge of deletion.

  1. That project is for someone who has WAY too much time. I'd rather be reading the books instead of painting them. But you can't unfriend your mom; then you'd be missing the penis-pepper posts!
