ePUNymous Portrait Series Part 3…

So a dear friend thought I Photoshopped this on the cop car.
That would be so cheating for this project!
ANYONE could do THAT!
I simply drew the band on clear plastic and then put it on the car hood.

That lead to me singing a Police medley in the streets of NY, insisting, yes they do.
They still didn’t.

Then, the next day, on October 13th…



The next day, October 14th, this happened.

*For dramatic effect, me bite into cookie before me take photo.
Even though me spit it out, me taste the hint of toxic pen for hours.

Then, that night, I was taking my dog for a walk, and this WARDROBE was sitting on my block.
Like, put out in the trash. Now it’s in my room.
There’s only one thing to say to that kind of fortuitous luck:

Long day.

End of the night.

Almost didn’t happen.

But then it did.
