Several months ago I made a purchase that I thought would lend an up-scale air of sophistication to my home.
You see, all the high-class (you can read that as wealth) homes, museums, galleries, etc. seem to have at least one....
Hhhhhmmmm........... I've got you intrigued now, don't I?
Well, I bought a bust (you know, a statue of a head). "Just like rich folk!" (that was a shout-out to my brother).
After several days of the white head next to the high-class "lucky" bamboo (it seems all the wealthy folk have bamboo too), I decided that those high-class, sophisticated people must be incredibly boring.
So, we decided the least we could do is give him a name.
My husband thought he looks like the famous statue of David, so he suggested we call him Dave. I overruled him and named him AL - short for albino (I apologize if that is offensive - we actually discussed this and determined it's not racist because albino is not a race... but, I digress)
I call him Al. When he calls me, he calls me Betty. (Yes, Sarah, I DO think that is funny!)
So, because we are NOT up-scale, high-class people and we ain't got NO sophistication at all (to all the grammar gurus and English teachers out there, yes, I realize the problems with that statement - just go with it) - Here is Al...
|During the World Series - cheering for the World Champion St Louis Cardinals, of course!|
|incognito for Halloween. (If that ain't sophisticated, I don't know what is!)|
|dressed for the countdown to Christmas.|
|dressed for Christmas Eve and Christmas day.|
|dressed in his fancy sweater vest (it's a vest because he doesn't need sleeves)|
|Another vest, but this one requires a shirt!|
|Looking dapper for Valentine's Day! Al has been influenced by Sarah, he is now a Dr. Who fan - notice his bow tie.|
So, if you come to our house, you will be greeted by Al - he sits by the front door and that's his job.
It has been suggested that Al create a facebook page. I had to gently point out that Al can't type... he has no hands.
