The easy way out
Day two of my art installation: I’m sitting here in the sweltering heat hoping that the painter’s tape does not unstick once the a/c is cranked on Sunday.
Yesterday it became pretty clear I was going to have to do a little more cutting. Fortunately it didn’t take too long.
This afternoon I rolled over a couple of rolls of paper in my little cart. I guess I didn’t need to because Paul gave me the painter’s tape right after I arrived. He never told me to keep it simple, but it was implied by his actions. Let’s just say he ignored my comments on leaning a giant scroll of paper up against the baptistry. I must admit that rolling up the painter’s tape was all I wanted to do once it was said and done. I placed them on the screen, checked to make sure they were somewhat centered, and laid the ladder down in the baptistry. If anyone wants an emergency immersion, they’ll be in for a rude awakening.
It’s so hot out that I’ve decided to treat myself with my favorite smoothie combination at Potbelly’s – Oreos, strawberries, and bananas. I had my first last week. Literally as I was typing this, I overheard the girl who made it for me repeat the ingredients to her coworker. Then she said, “Only a white person would order that.” The other girl defended me. She just needs to try it. She might be surprised and really like it. Now if I can just stop myself from drinking the whole thing.
