“Happiness is a good boyfriend.”
This one made me laugh, because of how much I emphasized “good”. This may have been the time of Greg the playa, so my next wish for a boyfriend would have to be more specific. Those two, scowling girls in the background were Missy and Sierra. They did not like me back then and believe me, the sentiments were mutual. I think the guy in the picture may have been J, the good but fleeting boyfriend. It didn’t last long, but we remained friends for awhile.
I knew I had my box of writing and illustrations somewhere, so I went on the hunt the other night. Didn’t have to look long or far. It’s a heavy box. Inside were four, bulging folders. The third folder down had New Kids on the Block on the front. Yes, I used to like em. Anyway, that folder was filled with my drawings. I also found another book I made based on the “Happiness is” theme, only I went to the opposite side of the spectrum and called the book “Angriness is…” It’s actually part 2, but I couldn’t find part one. It’s probably around somewhere. Anyway, stay tuned for excerpts from that book as well. I was so pleased to find all those drawings, though. I enjoyed going through all of them and will probably post a few on here for a laugh.
