Creams

I posted this on my family blog, but thought I'd put it here, too.

Adrianne just sent me to grab the desitin. She is on the phone and changing a diaper. I hopped up and went to the bathroom. I pulled out the drawer where we keep the desitin and grabbed it...luckily. Right next to the desitin is a very similar looking tube of icy hot. Wouldn't that be a nasty surprise for a little baby bum. I suppose I ought to go move that...

On another subject, I would like to write a book about a world of shapeshifters. I decided to call them shimatins because writing shapeshifter gets old really fast. I haven't decided exactly what the story will be about, but as soon as the first book gets super popular, I will carry on the story, as well as telling the stories of the evolution of the shimatins from people-like creatures. I want the story to be as feasible as possible, so everything I think about these creatures, I try to come up with a fairly reasonable explaination. It's fun to do, and I wish I had lots of free time when I had nothing else I would rather work on...maybe someday.

Mike, Adrianne was right. You are special.

SO GLAD you didn't grab the icy hot tube! As for the story, good luck! I'm not that creative to think of a story along those lines. I'll ask Geoff and Brent what they think of your idea. They'd like the whole shapeshifter thing.

At the risk of being really dumb, I am willing to ask what are you even talking about in the story part of your post? I haven't a clue what you are talking about. Shapeshifter? Shimatins? What?

A shapeshifter is a creature that can change it's shape. Depending on who is describing them, they have certain limits to what they can and can't change into. Some describe humaniod shapeshifters that can only change into other humanoid shapes (think of the girl, Mystique, from X-men). Others describe shapeshifters that can change to almost anything, for example a rock, an animal, any shape, etc.

It's okay, Dad, they are not real (except maybe to Mike), it is just a story :).

That would stink if you were a shape shifter and had to hide from someone in the bathroom and without thinking you shape-shifted into toilet paper. I think you know where I am going with this....

Jess and Jen said...

Yes, Lance, it would literally stink. Like Mike, you too are special.

Lance, you should co-author Mike's book.
