The prompt asks that we show readers a CHARACTER.
Every month, my boys, twins who are in the same class, must do a family project for school. October’s project asked them to choose a character from one of their favorite books and turn a pumpkin into that character. M chose Greg Heffley, from Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. William chose Darth Paper, from Darth Paper Strikes Back, an Origami Yoda book.
So when I saw today’s prompt, M and I hatched a plan. We took the pumpkin heads and, well, I’ll just show you:
During dinner, M also developed a character he decided to name Detective Bacon Mustache Hamburger Head. Unfortunately, Detective Bacon Mustache Hamburger Head had a not-so-secret admirer in Ginger (our weiner dog) and had to change his name to Detective Hamburger Head when Ginger got a bit too close to his mustache.
And both boys decided to pose for one last photo:
And this is a terrible segway, but I just wanted to thank you for your kind words when I was struggling last week (Why I Can’t Wait for my Colonoscopy). And I also wanted to tell you that of all the things they found in my colon (like plenty of scar tissue and adhesions), cancer was thankfully not one of them. It’s nice to have some good news!
Thank you for helping me get through an especially rough week!
