Me: “I need some ideas for Wordless/Wordful Wednesday for tomorrow, and looking through some old posts, I think I have a great idea.”
PN: “What is it?”
Me: “Well, I found where I posted about your 100th day of school in Kindergarten, and how you drew a funny picture of yourself of what you think you’d look like when you turn 100 years old. How about if you draw a sketch of what your perception is now, four years later? I think it’d be hilarious to do a comparison, don’t you?”
PN: “Do I have to draw something?”
Me: “Well, no, but it would sure help me out. How about for a dollar? Would you draw it for a dollar?”
PN (with a total look of disdain): “A dollar? Only a dollar?” (scoffs) “How about ten dollars?”
Me: “Nice try, but I will up it to five dollars. That’s my final offer. Will you do it? You can take creative license – draw whatever you want, you can even make yourself a dragon if that will inspire you to do it. Five bucks.”
PN: “Really? A dragon? Well, OK, maybe I will. Sure, that sounds good, I can say that when I was 17 I stole some treasure and was turned into a dragon.”
Me (trying not to laugh): “See? Now you’re putting a great and interesting spin on it – get busy.”
Here’s her Kindergarten picture from four years ago of what she envisioned herself to look like when she turned 100:
Yes, I did have to get clarification on what appeared to be three rows of boobs – those are actually wrinkles on her neck. Ahem.
Here’s her interpretation four years later of what she’d look like at 100 years old (you know, after she steals some treasure at 17 and is turned into a dragon):
Doesn’t she make an intimidating 100 year old dragon? Worth 5-dollars, don’t you think?
