gravity gives art a bad name

by karen #1965 3rd grade teacher all i got to say is...  @#!!!! ...so i am in this "do good stuff for others club" and we do this dumb secret pal stuff...i mean...from august to may, you are supposed to do stuff for your secret pal...i am terrible...no matter how hard i try, i cannot keep my identity secret once i start giving gifts...they always guess... by the third gift, they know it is me...so anyway...i decided this year to wait until may to give all the gifts at once...so of course, the celebration luncheon is 6 days away...welcome to panic city!...i go get this ceramic "very glazed" pot from walmart...and some concrete patch from ace...now if you take a liking to this project and decide to whip up one of these pots...well get ready mix concrete patch...easy stuff...buy anything else and you waste your time and money......
so, i get to work...i get all my stuff out...and start putting the concrete patch on the pot...look...

now my secret pal is a doctor...and if you know her, please don't tell her...cause she doesn't know yet...or i guess i should say that she probably knows...cause like i said...they always know...may be a conspiracy like watergate...so anyway...i got all this doctor stuff all over it...take another look...oh yeah...nice i am thinking...

 then, i start notice the concrete slipping under the lip...take a look...WHY DID I BUY THE POT WITH GLAZE?...I KNEW THE CONCRETE WOULD SLIP OFF OF IT...!...I HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE...WHY DID I NOT LEARN FROM MY EXPERIENCES...YOU KNOW WHY, FOLKS???...cause i loved the cool glaze on the pot and i had a little extra faith in myself and thought i could make it work...me verses gravity...wrong...

so now i get creative, and i think if i put this pot in mid-air, well it will stop sliding...i know...stupid...but i just did not want to give up...


sometimes wood is stronger than concrete and a terracotta clay pot...when, you might ask 1965?...uhmm...uhmmm...well, never prolly...like i said...i was just hoping...anyway...about 5 minutes after i got this creative ladder contraption set up...i heard...
BOOM!
yep...it fell and broke...and i sat there and stared...and mr. o husband came out to check and make sure i was okay...and i just sat and stared...and i got up...and i cleaned up...and i took a shower...and got in the bed and continued to stare...
so...
mr. o husband comes in the room and says...sorry about your pot...


gravity...we are not on very good terms these days...it is messing with me and my body parts and my art...gravity gives lots of stuff a bad name...

Shot through the heart and you're to blame
You give love a bad name
(Bad name)
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
(Bad name)
Hey, you give love a bad name

(Bon Jovi, 1986)

Happy April 28, 2010!
