Michael attempts to look knowledgeable and says, "Just for fun, why don't you explain it to me like I'm an eight year old."
Oscar says, "We have an extra 4,300 dollars. We need to spend that by the end of the day so it won't be deducted from next year's budget."
Michael nods and says, "Now explain it to me like I'm five."
"Your Mommy and Daddy give you ten dollars to open a lemonade stand......"
With my new camera, I'm Michael Scott. I've read the manual, but I need someone to explain it to me like I'm five.
And then I got crazy and turned off the flash. I kind of like it.
Here is lovely Madeline in portrait mode
And I can't remember what I did here, but I know it was right after this photo that Lyle glared at me and told me to stop.
So I moved onto the dogs. This was taken without the flash. When I don't use the flash, I like the colors better, but the picture is more likely to be blurry. Someone needs to explain that to me like I'm five. Maybe four.
So I moved onto inanimate objects. You can actually see the stitches on my quilt. I'm giddy.
And look at this. I've been trying unsuccessfully to get a picture of this for years. Back during my HGTV obsession, Hildy on Trading Spaces painted a board red and then laid lace over it and spray-painted it gold, making a stencil effect that was really quite ghastly. I saw potential though and tried it on the closet door panels in the little girls' room. My old camera would just flash and you could never see the stenciling. No problemo for the new camera.
And the new
I sensed that the inanimate objects were getting annoyed too, so I'll just leave you with a picture of the new wood floor. The floor which I told Lyle numerous times (with at sigh) would be completely and totally acceptable as a Christmas present. Really, truly. And Lyle wisely saw through the sighing and didn't buy any of my act. He just bought the camera.
He's so smart that way.
