How to Make an Interior Designer Crap His Pants

Today marks a very sad day for my husband.


I noticed a lovely addition to a new piece of art in our living room this morning.

Need a close up?


Black crayon. You can pay your respects to D in the comments.

(I think it’s pretty funny, but let’s just keep that between you and me.)

    Oh my goodness! At least it was black crayon. Sort of goes with the color scheme.

    gasp! was there no glass on the frame to protect the painting, or are we talking a worst-case-crayon-on-canvas-scenario? yikes.

    Maybe you can approach it like, “he’s destined to be an artist!”??

    Artists and their visions. You can’t get between them.

    I neglected to mention that the painting is one of D’s personal creations. Double shot to the heart!!

    At least he chose a coordinating color. Reminds me of when my daughter “colored” our fridge with her metal barrette. You can’t get between an artist and his or her work!

    P.S. Have D read this:

    P.P.S. “That Night” continues on to several other nights and several pieces of furniture.

    Uh oh…. and yes, I laughed too, but only because it’s something my 2 year old has done to me.

    I’m having heart palpatations right now just THINKING about it. Not enough Xanax in the WORLD.

    Oh, no.

    I think D might need a vodka on the rocks tonight.

    I would think it no small victory that it is D’s artwork – that way, the piece is collaborative… organic… tension between order and disorder… youth and control… really, this is perfect. (You can rename it “perspective,” since it’s all in how you look at it…)

    I bet none of this helps a bit.
