the other day, one of my students asked me 'what do you do best?' lemme tell you that is a question that makes you sit down at 8am. and to be fair, i will ask you the same thing, but you get a little notice while you read this.
once i sat down, i replied 'i use my hands. that is what i do best. oh, i can see, unsee and resee.'
my latest repurposed mirror project turned out freaking awesome. a student from last semester had a huge wall mirror that had been attached to a leaking wall. it sucked for him that it came crashing down, but it didn't suck for me since he graciously saved the pieces for me.
him:'dude, my huge mirror came crashing down last night.'
me: *scooby doo ears radaring an idea* 'eeeeerrrh?'
me: 'that was scoobyese for 'can i have the pieces?'
him: 'uh, sure.' *while he steps back from me in nonbaby steps*
the old mantel had been a bit vanilla before and the mirror mosaic glammed it up quite nicely.
so, what do you do best?
