HERE WE GO AGAIN
Howdy party people! How the hell are ya?
Sorry for not posting in forever, it’s just that last year I had a kid, moved to Maryland, started a new job, broke my favorite bowl, blah blah blah. Long story short, as rad a Tumblr is, I just didn’t have enough time to tumble as I spent most of 2012 dragging Baby Cannonball (my daughter) to various Bed Bath and Beyonds looking for a decent bowl to represent my Monday Morning Apple Jacks.
Anyway, the photo above is a polaroid of me holding a polaroid taken in, I want to say, Nashville, in 2003, maybe. I don’t know, it could also be St. Louis in 2002, or Cincinnati in 2004. Either way, a big goal for me in 2013 is to once again be able to fit into that sweet Wyoming T Shirt (which probably means no more damn Apple Jacks).
I guess that’s about it. Hopefully I’ll post here again before 2014.
HERB & MARY
On a Saturday morning in 1985 Herb and Mary drove to Sears and purchased their very first color television set. They quickly zoomed home in their Chevy Chevette so that they could catch their favorite cartoon, The Smurfs.
Once home, Herb struggled to carry the TV up the stairs as Mary made some popcorn. Once the popcorn was popped Herb plugged in the TV and they sat back to enjoy The Smurfs. What they saw was shocking in the worst imaginable way, it quite literally turned their world upside down…
You see, up until this point Herb and Mary had only seen the Smurfs in black and white, and as such, Herb had always assumed that they (the smurfs) were brown, and Mary had always assumed that they were purple. They simply could not wrap their heads around the newfound “blueness” of the Smurfs. Their brains quite literally could not process a “blue” they had never believed to be true.
Refusing to smurf in a world where Smurfs were blue, Herb and Mary quickly smurfed their brand new Magnavox on fire and smurfed it out the window. They spent the rest of the day smurfing around with the cardboard box that had once held their brand new Magnovox.
