The Children Aannerude, a Poem by Otis.
The Children Aannerud
Came to the FunCenter
There was a point in my life when I thought that I could be a poet. I had this friend, his name was Jake. Jake wrote poetry, and all the ladies swooned over him. He wrote poetry that had all sorts of fancy words, and strange thoughts. I thought, ‘Hey…if this gig works for Jake, maybe I should get a journal, a fancy pen, and create beautiful poetry.’
Unfortunately, everything that I wrote was just like the poem for The Children Aannerud featured at the start of this post. It appeared to be written by an emotionally stunted third grader. Somehow, I could not imagine the ladies swooning over this. Dang you, Jake.
Later in life, I would use this same journal in an attempt to become an artist. One night, in a fit of inspiration, I took out a black pen, and began what I thought would become an epic pen drawing of the most beautiful woman in my universe at that time (ahhh…the sweet love of youth), and by the time that I had completed the drawing, it resembled something that could only be described as a cross between a Gibbon and Chewbacca. Perhaps I shall just stick to photography.
Well, yes, back to the matter at hand, The Children Aannerud! THEY TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY ROCKED THE SOCKS OFF OF THE FUNCENTER.
And that’s that. You don’t want to take my word for it? Then wait for me to say ‘Enjoy’, and look at the pics to follow, because – as usual – they are awesome. MuchLove to the whole fam for stopping down to the FunCenter, and to all of you out there on this lovely sunshiney day (remember, it’s always lovely and sunshiney in the land of blog) – Enjoy!
