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.)

    Gasp. Maybe now you can say it’s even more original? Or, a family collaboration? Or something? Oh, dear.

    Do I need to remind you about George Washington and the cherry tree?

    My son scratched his name into the front side panel of my husband’s black car. He thought he was doing something nice by showing us how he could write his name.

    This is known as an OGN at our house-
    Oh God, NO.

    I paint. Many moons ago, one of my children made a Zorro-esque slash of blue-green crayon across a nearly completed work. I couldn’t bear to toss out the piece but to look at it made me mourn for what used to be.

    How hard it is when the tiny vandal is someone you love dearly. My sympathies.

    OMG… uh… I would have crapped my pants, too. And moved all black crayons, pencils, pens to the 4 ft or higher level shelves.

    There are places that can repair that kind of additional artwork.

    I think it looks like it’s a signature – “To D. Your friend – Mondrian” We had a similar incident with an American Girl Doll and a Sharpie…shudder.

    Oh dear Lord. I suppose there’s no having Wito paint over it himself…
