Scenes from my front porch

well last night my bubs and I were sitting on our porch swing, the first official "porch swing date" of the spring....while sitting there we like to have fake conversations that we imagine the people we see are having, so many people do this, whether they are at the mall or a park. Of course, we think we're the funniest when we do it....

so last night we developed a few little "playlets" hope you enjoy.

The Tragedy of the Skate Betty

(staring- kid with bad hair on a skateboard....and his obviously bored girlfriend)

skateboarding kid- wanna follow me around and watch me skate

skate betty- sure, skateboarding is cool, so are you

skateboarding kid- I know it

skate betty- wow, that's cool can I try

skateboarding kid- no

skate betty- that's ok, I have a low self esteem and daddy issues, so I like just following you around

skateboarding kid- I know it....hey, wanna watch me look at cell phones?

skate betty- sure...cell phones are cool

( scene ends when our two star-crossed teenagers enter the cell phone store across the street)

well....there you have it....a snippet of life, a vignette if you will....nice huh?

oh, and before I forget, I have marked down all the reproduction prints in my shop to $5, I have very few left and I am going to sell of all of these and start new with a whole new series, the new prints will be done at a different printer on new I thought it best to finish off all of these first.

So................most of the prints I only have one left of, so get them quick before they're gone!!

My husband and I do the same thing! Yours is a sadly accurate script...such dark comedy.

Love the script! I do the same watching the park and playground from my deck.

Hilarious! I do this too, and I've got so much fodder working retail. I always make up who this person is and that person is and all the facets of their life and I always do it over the headset at work to make the kids laugh.

You got those two right on!
