When you're young, there's nice ways to say it: creative. imaginative. unique. People smile at you and shake their heads. When you get older, the vocabulary changes and so does the way people say it. schizophrenic, paranoid, bi-polar. My mother offered me my bedroom set for my room. I took only the antique vanity, whose stool I methodically destroyed with a metal nail file. The bed I stepped away from. I never told anyone the truth about that bed. The rails weren't broken due to a frantic slumber party where we were jumping on it, or my 200+ pound brother flopping upon it. I willed them to break.

My bedside table was a simple wooden chair, the depression in the center to make your butt think it's actually comfortable. I had a clock, maybe a lamp, and every night I would get a glass of water but before I could fall asleep I had to unplug the clock and the lamp. If the glass where to spill, it could start a fire. In my antique wood house, in my varnished antique wood bed, I would be engulfed in flames. I would die screaming, my skin curling away from my muscle as it popped and sizzled like meat in a fryer. I could see it happening. I'd awaken and I could see the flames eating the posts of the bed, hungry for me.

In second grade, I coloured a dinosaur rainbow in order to not have one crayon used more than the rests. The other kids laughed. In my defense, I stated that people weren't around when dinosaurs where so how do they know that the dinosaurs WEREN'T rainbow coloured? My teacher gushed about how creative I was. Hung my dinosaur for anyone walking by to see. Subsequent art projects were the same. Rainbow opossums. A rainbow pig-puppet made from a brown grocery bag. At each one, the teacher beamed. And soon, others in the class took up my rainbow obsession. I don't remember anything else about that, and if I told you I did I would be lying.

The power of linguistics.

This is my FOURTH (ish?) ADIML! My last one was quite some time ago, and I planned on doing one last November but my lovely daughter broke my camera in the middle of it! ANYWAY, here goes!

Katelin. 23. Lafayette/Port Barre, Louisiana. single mom. Mother's Day #2! includes: three generations of Edge women, cute baby (obviously), a bit of driving, and home improvements (which always seem to show up...)

55 images




Swing, swing, up in the sky....Collapse )


Great. Now that I've decided to do one, ADIML is spotlighted so it's gonna get lost in all the n00b posts and is currently under review by stinkin' moderators. BTW, you guys should do these. If you don't mind explaining to everyone why you're taking pictures of your food.
