After this post, you will surely label me as certifiably insane, but that’s ok. I’ve been feeling a little unfinished without a label…like I forgot to put on some jewelry or lip gloss or something. Now I’ll be fully dressed, ready to face the cruel world, and cast blame for my quirkiness.
Today the blame falls on this girl who happens to be demonstrating very poor fashion sense. She’s taking after her father in this picture.
Socks with sandals? White shoes after Labor Day?? A wedgie??? How did she slip by me and make it to the car without my noticing? Fortunately because of my great photography skills or lack thereof, you can’t tell she’s got dirt smudged all over her face.
It all began one evening when FringeMan remembered that Green Acres, his all time favorite ice-cream shop would be closing for the season. You know WINTER – that season that runs from October to May in several unfortunate places. Anyway, he wanted to get his last vanilla cone and who am I to turn down dessert? It would have been thankless of me.
We were merrily on our way, when after passing the giant old iron gates of a cemetery, FringeKid asks to turn around and visit.
“The cemetery?” I questioned wondering if it’s really possibly my child could have been switched at birth.
FringeMan, although hot on the scent of vanilla flavored milk by-products, indulges his little girl and turns the car around. At first I refused to exit the vehicle. I mean, come on? These two are just plain weird!
FringeBoy never did step foot out of the car. He’s the smart one in the family, because after a minute of seeing these guys curiously visiting the dead, I realized what a great photo opportunity I was missing.
And this is where I shift the blame to you with your great bloggy pictures, fancy cameras, and mad photography skills. You’re making me think more and look for more opportunities to take unusual pictures.
Now if you could only teach me to make them look as pretty as yours…
Who am I kidding? It’s a wonder I even got these downloaded off my camera!
Ahhhhh! No. Peeking.
Enough. Tomorrow it’s on to important topics that have the potential to impact world affairs.
