Two creative exercises done while walking
weird characters I came up with this week that I have no intention in using for anything but would like to keep record of.
1. A three year old girl who wants to be an old woman. she dresses up in a cotton shawl and a cane with an orthopedic grip. She stuffs her grandma’s old Dr. Scholl’s into some flat shoes and carries around a huge purse stuffed with moth balls, Kleenex, loose change and Werther’s Originals.
2. Okay so you know the movie Kickass? This is like that except for a nerdy girl who is way too into magical girl anime and manga. I don’t know how she deals with the transformation sequence. I do know that instead of trying to beat up crime bosses, she just shows up and lectures them on Love and Truth and Justice.
3. Someone is featured on My Strange Addiction for their addiction to watching My Strange Addiction
walking along, I hear one side of a phone conversation. It went something like “… This ain’t New York, this ain’t Vegas, this ain’t Rome, This ain’t Paris…” And I thought, what an inefficient list. There is no end. To wit:
A further list of places This ain’t:
3. Gary, Indiana
5. the bottom of the ocean
6. no disco
7. no country club either
8. the head of a pin
9 a closet to a magical realm
10 a plain old closet
11. the moon
12. the shoe what That Old Woman Who Someone Should’ve Called Social Services On lived in with all them kids
13. grandma’s house
14. a bathtub
15. the produce aisle at HEB
And so on. See what I mean? no end.
