The question haunts me. And watches me pee. And hears all of the inappropriate things I say when I talk to myself.
Ok, so not the last two things, but I do totally freak out about ghosts watching me pee for some weird reason.
Anyway, I asked a few friends what they would do for a living if money was no object and their answers were awesome.
One friend said she'd paint all day, my brother-in-law said his goal in life is to win the lotto (we were drunk and then had a heated debate about how getting lucky can't be a life goal, but he ended up winning because that song Lucky by Pharrell and Daft Punk came on and we forgot about the stupid lotto argument and it kinda proved his point that you can be rich and happy from being "Lucky"), and my best friend in the whole world said that she would draw things in the faux suede of her couch while breastfeeding because that's what she does all day long anyway. I will post her pictures now because she wants to get her coffee table book idea kick started and they are fucking great.
She sent me all of these via Facebook and before I could even ask, she answered the question burning in my brain.
"Why yes, that IS a horse-bat! They are like those famous amazing intricate sand pictures that dude does that are like only made to be perfect for a second before the weather and ocean takes them away. Except not good like that, and on my dirty couch."
What I am guessing is a chicken creature.
The international wifi symbol.
A beautiful butterfly.
I am interpreting this as a screaming squirrel, but you can choose to believe it is anything your heart desires.
And, now I know the meaning of true love. It's a lifelong friendship with someone who strives to create coffee table books out of doodles on their filthy couch while they breastfeed. Find that with someone and you'll never be alone again.
Except for when you pee.
Unless you have a ghost in your house.
This is my favorite ghost. Not the cat. The pedophile from Donnie Darko.
