Lost in the Flood (Self-Portrait # 6)

July 15, 2009

So, did I ever tell you about the time I got stuck in a flood and almost drowned in my car?

Two years ago – to the day – I got stuck in a flood  and almost drowned in my car.  Escaped through the window.  Watched the car float down the highway.  The firemen said there were four ways I could’ve died.

Here is my dramatic interpretation of those events:

Summer, 1995

So, did I ever tell you about the time I broke both of my wrists at the same time?

By running into a wall?

Well, that’s high school for ya’.  Field day, 10th grade.  It was raining, so they held it indoors.  I was going really fast to try to make up lost ground for our team in the relay race – so fast, in fact, that I couldn’t avoid hitting the wall.

About half the class had decided to cut school and head into the city that day.  Me?  No, I had to be a good young lad and show up.

The result is that I spent the summer looking like this:

No, I couldn’t go to the beach.  Yes, everybody made fun of me.  And yes, my fingers were stuck in a “thumb’s up” position all summer.

Why I actually tell people about this is beyond me.

It’s time for another self-portrait:

With this, we usher in a new batch of drawings that I like to call: Summer, 2008. 

Myself, again

Here’s self-portrait number two:

Not sure what’s going on with my left eye.  Looks like maybe I’ve got a monocle there.

Oh, hello!  Welcome to my little collection of drawings.  I’ll start with a self-portrait, so you can get to know me.  I’ll post an actual photo from my days as a would-be actor below it for comparison.  You can draw your own conclusions.
