Rorschach

Two of my favorite blog posts of all time are from Susie over at What Was I Thinking. These are the two posts here and here. I love her "therapist's" insight on the meaning of the children's artwork.

While I was helping my dad clean up some stuff from the basement I discovered a box filled with old artwork and school projects from my childhood. I am curious as to what these pictures say about me.

I drew nipples on my mom. And if you look closely I also drew a penis on her as well.


Some kind of deformed penguin.



This is a picture of my family. I found a few things about this funny. The first being that I drew Jimmy, the youngest, laying down because he was the baby. The second is that Kevin's head is not to scale with the rest of the family. If I drew it to scale I would have needed an extra sheet of paper. And the last is blown up below for you to review.
I must have told my mom what to write. Here it says that my brother Dennis is a Martian. I still belive he is some type of alien.
My mom wrote on this one "Me and Billy in a Submarine".
Here is a picture of me peeing in the shower.

Scary. Very, very scary.

Your Mom has a penis?!??

Chris said...

The mom nipples scares me a little.

Oh, The Joys said...

I'm with the rest of 'em. Scary stuff.

Aside from your Mom's nipples and penis, is she wearing fringed leather chaps?!?! Because that's just scary!

Goodlordhavemercy.
Clearly, Mom has everything she needs. She was a multi-tasker before they even invented the word. Her giant hands make her very competent.

You and Pat are more closely connected than the others, at least in this drawing.

What is that other thing, to the right, when you're peeing in the shower? A dinner table? When did you draw that one, last week?

(If I really interpreted these drawings, you'd all be hauled away.) :p

Shelley said...

At least you drew your mom's nipples where they're supposed to be. My daughter asked me once, "Mommy, why are you boobies so loooooonnggg?" NOT what you want to hear after having breastfed 2 children.

Hilarious post, Bill!

sari said...

Well, peeing in the shower saves water anyway.
