Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days 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 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 might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
Son. How may times must we have this same conversation? You lick toads, not turtles. TOADS.
Besides, it’s a myth anyway. You can’t get high from toad licking. If you could, there’d be a serious black market for amphibians. Which there isn’t.
Still, son. I’m begging you here. Don’t. Lick. The. Turtle. No good will come of it and we’ll all just feel silly afterwards.
