So Jira and i were at the shops on the weekend.
As we were walking past a little art store, i pointed out a few lil ole ladies taking a portrait drawing class. They were sitting right in the window so it was easy to see that their drawings were really quite impressive.
I said to Jira, that maybe he should do a class. His father is a proffessional aboriginal artist, and ive seen some half finished paintings that Jira did in high school, that i would love to see him finish. He looked at me like i had three heads however, and kept on walking.
Not willing to give the subject up that easily, i started telling Jira what a great drawer i was.
I got the three head look again.
"No really Jira! i used to be really good! "
At this point, I chose to ignore the fact he obviously didnt care about my extraordinary artistic talents, and continued to yak his ear off.
" Yea, you know, once when i was 13, i drew a portrait of the band Hanson and it was like, really good! you could tell who they were and everything!"
He looks over with a half smile, and says "Hanson?"
And i say, "yea you know the three blonde brothers that sung mmm bop? Man i was so in love with them when i was like 13. I really thought i was going to marry Taylor. He was so cute. I had all their albums, you know. I even had their christmas album, and you know what? i still really like their christmas album."
His half smile became a big smile, as he put his arm around me and said
"Its lucky i love you"
I looked at him, and asked why?
And without missing a beat, he answered
"because you are so not cool."
