Day 264: Corner View. "From Where I'm Sitting."

While sitting at J's school Fun Days, I took these.  Lovin' how to fudge the CV today.  HA!

OK.  Here's a kid--unrecognizable--doing a relay.  I just noticed his Beach Bum shirt.  Apt for this particular race, I must say.

Julia sack racin' it.

I was recruited to help facepaint, since there was only one parent there and umpteen-zillion kids waiting.  I'm not artist.  No, really.  When I was teaching, I had the kids, including the Kindergarten classes, draw anything that needed to be drawn on the board.  My drawings were pathetic.  But I digress.  So.  ahem.  I did the kids (see J above).  that would be a ROCKET SHIP on his cheek.  And I was using a simple drawing that was kindly provided as a guide.  It still looks like, well, definitely not a rocket ship.  But A didn't care.

After I did Adam's face, he did mine.  I can't believe I'm posting this.  I also can't believe I went out in public like this.  Sans makeup.  Sans hair fixed.  Yup.  This is pretty much what I look like when I get up in the morning (I think I had a shower.  I can't remember for sure.  It has been a blur of a day.  I know I didn't do anything with my hair.  Did I comb it?  Hmn...).  OK.  So I put on a quick lip gloss.  Other than's all real, people.  

Except the paint.  That's not too real.  At all.

Off have a seat over at Jane's to check out other CVs.  I'll bet she has a really comfy chair.

Adam's face is adorable, and I see a future in cosmetics ahead of him.
