my little cousin, ethan, is in the hospital. i used to give him art lessons when i visited but, over the months, he's been less interested in learning to draw than he is in just plain drawing or, even better, playing transformers. last night, he managed to finish a pretty cool sabertooth tiger before we began a game of "guess what i'm drawing." the stick figure with the giant muscles and big ears is supposed to be me. "you made me look like the easter bunny!" i told ethan. "i made you look like a monster!" the boy with his hand in his mouth is ethan. "what am i doing?" he asked. "wiggling your loose tooth."
