Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective lives mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch—either in illustration or word form—and the other would make a companion to the sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise makes both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
I didn’t do it.
I been here all day, playing with the stupid dirt, ‘cos no one will buy me any good toys. All mine are busted.
I ain’t moved from this spot.
I haven’t touched any stupid rocks after the last time.
Yeah? You’re stupid.
Your sister, too.
I told you I didn’t do it. I never seen your house or your window or your blue lamp.
How’d I know it was blue? Your mom told me last night, right after I paid her.
Yeah? My dad could kick your dad’s ass.
Just don’t tell him about the window, ‘kay?
