paint

Today I painted one kitchen chair "sun" yellow and my steamer trunk "apple-a-day" red.

Laurie's been wanting one chair in the house that is yellow. Whoever feels sad can sit in the yellow chair, she says.

The steamer trunk is big and old. My mother bought it for me as a kid for a toy chest. Now it's so red, so so so red, I can hardly stand myself. I'll stock it with art supplies after we move this Friday.

Coming soon... photos!

I have to put another coat on the chair and complete the second coat on the trunk.

I'll photo them once we move - they're in the dark basement right now and aren't in an optimal portraiture setting.

If I were Snow White, I'd bite the corner of the trunk.

At first I wrote bite the "chest" instead of "trunk" - and I thought might be too ambiguous or just plain sassy.

You've always been accidentally suggestive in writing. Which I love. Which you claim to be surprised by.

Sassy pants.
