I think I would have died. And if not, someone else would have shortly!


Hahahahahaha!!! I would have shrieked and shrieked, too, and then that kid would be bookin' it!

But it IS kind of hilarious. ;-P

Oh my good heavens.

Perhaps some reference to manners and basic human decency and for heavens sake who would want to take someone who would do something like that on a road trip again, I'm just asking!

I'd have shrieked too.

I swear, I just tried to click "like" on this post. Awesome.

I'm impressed at the use of the word "lintel." Totally had to google that one, even though it was easy to tell what you meant by looking at the picture. I wanted the full definition!

Why Waldo Peirce - does P also have plans to never work a day in his life? While doing scholarly Peirce research on wikipedia just now, I came across this comment from a disgruntled Hemingway, after Peirce and his brood of five unruly children had descended on Hemingway's house: "[the children] never obey, destroy everything, don't even answer when spoken to, and he is like an old hen with a litter of apehyenas."
Btw, if P wants to put his tableau-creating abilities to better use, steer him towards Dinovember. Magical stuff - I'm sure he'd be inspired.

There's an outstanding portrait of Peirce by George Bellows in the de Young museum in SF ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/sftrajan/5692809806/

(Rather sadly, the Bellows portrait of Peirce -- not his crazy-making children -- is better than anything Peirce himself ever painted. IMHO.)


My grandfather (with my brother assisting) once made a noose and hung my Little Person doll (original cabbage patch) to my bedroom light fixture. I have never forgiven them.

If I didn't love Patrick before (which I did) I would surely love him now! I would have screamed like a little girl if I had been in your shoes; but since I wasn't, I can laugh. Patrick slays me!

When we were kids, we had a life-sized cardboard stand-up of Hugh Downs (used for advertising something or other). Every so often Hugh would make an unexpected appearance in the bathroom, or a bedroom. Mom would scream, and we'd laugh our fool heads off. We were terrible children, but really, Mom was a good sport about it.
