I’m going to let you in on a little secret: When it comes to drawing, painting, carving, stenciling, hell, even TRACING I more often than not fail. Simply put, I am full of artistic suck. But that doesn’t stop me from attempting some good ol’ fashioned pumpkin carving. (Even though it probably should. Me + sharp objects + a requirement for slight artistic skills = no bueno. Seriously, my family has never trusted me with knife.)
Right, so back to pumpkin carving. Year after year I attempt, and year after year I…well, I ultimately always carve something out of the orange fruit, but it doesn’t necessarily turn out like I want it to.
Example: let me show you what I carved last night.
Do you know what that was supposed to be, dear readers? Let me give you a hint: it wasn’t supposed to look like a lopsided Sims diamond/marker/indicator thingy.
Still stuck? Let me show you a picture with the lights on. (You can faintly see the original carving lines.)
MEEEEEENNGGGHH!!! IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A FUCKING TRIFORCE!!!!!
How does one not get it through their head that ALL they need to do is carve out three triangles? And how in the hell did I end up with a diamond? Can I even call it a diamond? It’s like a circular diamond. Yeah, that’s it.
Needless to say, I received a lot of “DAW that’s adorable” comments from my friend.
I blame the Captain Morgan.
