In honor of Gracie's safe return home, I'd like to post another childhood journal entry.
In sifting through my stack of old notebooks, I quickly realized that my penchant for inappropriateness extended far beyond my kindergarten year and well into the second grade. You'll notice that my captions, illustrations, and--um--understanding of the human anatomy had progressed a great deal in a three year span.
In 1985, my repertoire consisted mainly of boobies, nude animals, and bikinis. By '88 I had moved on to the almighty set o' schnuts.
Even I'm a bit thrown off by this illustration. I honestly don't recall learning anything about the family jewels until 'Puberty Movie Day' in fifth grade. I do, however, have a vague memory of my classmate Antonio helping me draw the accessories.
CAPTION: April fools day is when people play jokes on other people. Last year I said there was a mouse in the cellar. Then my dad ran down stairs in his underwear. Then I said April Fools Day!
