He Wants a Fancy Dinner Party.


March 27, 2018 by sandwichcontrol

He doesn’t want to go to Wizard World.

Sometimes, taken out of context, the things that come out of my mouth are brilliant.

And the things that go into my mouth are Fritos.

Like the whole bag I ate for dinner last night.

What can I say?

I was hungry and the chili was scalding hot so I needed a higher Frito to chili ratio to create maximum airflow on the way from the bowl to my mouth. How else can you eat your piping hot chili as quickly and efficiently as possible? I couldn’t let it get cold.

Yesterday was a long day.

Not in that “I worked all day like a normal person” kind of way, though.

I was done with most of my work early.

So I started painting on the fireplace again.

I did take the occasional break to stop and smell the flowers…

Monday, March 26

I painted until the paint and/or the barometric pressure gave me a headache.

Then I took some ibuprofen, showered, ate the aforementioned Fritos/chili, and got back to painting. I’ve got nearly all of the first four colors done on the top part of the fireplace.

Speaking of painting, did you see the portrait of Marget that Le Duc had commissioned for me? I posted in the social media last evening. It just showed up in the mail yesterday. Out of the blue.

It is magnificent.

I will be stretching the canvas and framing it next week sometime. Then it will go in the Hall of Portraits.

As for today, I’m hoping to get done with work early again so that I can continue cranking on getting the fireplace painted.

I’d also like to dig into the shitload of comics that Lucky brought me over the weekend.

But first, I need to drink some coffee and make a Frito chili pie in the toilet.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
