And it's starting to feel like real summer now: hot and buggy. This week's prompt at Illustration Friday is "Tornado", and I'm thinking about summer storms.
When a lot of people think of Colorado, they think about the Rocky Mountains. But really, that's only half the story. The western half. The eastern half of the state might as well be Kansas Junior. It's flat and tornado-y out there.
I was trying to think of what to draw for "Tornado" other than a tornado. Then I thought of Kansas. Then I thought of "The Wizard of Oz". Then I realized that the Tin Man wears a funnel on his head... like in funnel cloud! Eureka!
Okay, maybe it's not that exciting of a revelation.
Anyway, it gave me a fun subject to play with this morning. Chaco is moving to a new apartment today and I'm wanting to look busy so I don't get roped into lifting heavy things. He found a place that's nicer than his college apartment and closer to where he works.
Wolfgang and a roommate found a new place too, but won't move in for a while due to roommate's current lease. I warned Meego that Wolfgang will probably be moving back home temporarily. I looked around Meego's room - which was formerly also Wolfgang's room - and contemplated where Wolfgang will sleep.
It took Meego about a half second to say, "couch".
See, Meego has successfully made that room his own, filling it with guitars, and most recently, a keyboard he bought with birthday money. It looks like a band room in there. And there's no longer room for another bed.
OH well, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. In the meantime, I'll just try to look busy and let things fall where they may, like waiting out a storm.
