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.
Are those pistachios? I love pistachios. For me? Oh, I simply couldn’t. Maybe just one.
Did you hear about Pippa? It’s all about Pippa right now. Pippa this and Pippa that. She’s simply divine, Pippa, even when she can’t keep her clothes on.
Maybe another nut, if you don’t mind.
Did I tell you about Juan? Oh, I simply must tell you all about Juan. He’s en fuego, darling. His milkshake brings all the boys to his yard, if his waxing consultant is to be believed.
May I take a handful for later? These are simply divine.
I love what you’re doing with your hair. You’ve embraced the gray. I wouldn’t have the guts to look my age.
I’m going to put the rest in my pocket. I simply can not resist them. Hopefully I won’t be attacked by squirrels on my way home. How the neighbors would talk.
