Ever notice how some people only know two adjectives? Well, you will now, because I pointed it out.

FINALLY it’s the last week of school for my son. Four more days. That’s a long four days when it’s already, officially, summer (for real).
I’m spending those four days figuring out when and how I’ll get work done from now until September. As well as preparing bribes for myself so I’ll actually get business-related work done instead of just staying home every day and digging into my large stack of library books. I love my job, but I’m awfully fond of reading and lazing around and making excuses to go get ice cream, too.
But isn’t that pretty much what summer is about?
So. There’s this monthly local paper in my area that’s sometimes highly informative, but mostly unintentionally amusing. I always read it cover to cover looking for the interesting bits. Usually it’s just entertaining letters from grouchy townsfolk, but this current issue has a photo of a man and a pineapple plant he grew.
There’s no story, just the photo of the man and his plant, a title and a caption. I don’t know who this guy is, or why his pineapple growing skills are worthy of a newspaper picture. I kept looking for mention of the photo in other articles in the paper, but there was nothing. SO confusing.
Since I use doodles to try and make sense of my world, I decided to make a doodle of the picture in hopes it would help me understand it. I copied the picture to the best of my abilities, with some artistic interpretation (the local guy wasn’t wearing a pink and orange striped maxi skirt), added the title and caption, and … I’m just as confused.
Well, I don’t know what that thing is, but it sure is happy about the cabbage display.
Or maybe it’s just a fan of Avatar.
