A Picture worth a thousand words?

This past weekend wasn't particularly blog worthy, so I am reaching back to the past.

As I was driving north on Harbor Blvd up in the Fullerton area one day, I caught a quick glimpse of a young couple in a car getting ready for the light on the left turn lane. Nothing special until the very next moment.

With my profuse apologies to the regular visitors to my blog, most of whom are accomplished artists, I confess that this is indeed the best artist rendition I can pull off, but please do not allow my limited artistry to cloud your ability to appreciate the incredulity of what I witnessed with my own eyes.

(sorry about the poor drawing. The thing hanging out of the girl's mouth is one of her fangs. Yes, they were that big.)

It took me hours to pick up my jaw off the floor. I wonder how long it took that poor guy to pick up his.

But ... didn't you see them from behind? and what's that thing hanging off the girl's mouth? Was she being gagged? .... I don't get it.

Am I understanding that the passenger socked the driver for singing in his car?

Marian, that is supposed to be one of her fangs. I am sorry that I'm not artistically inclined. I have no idea what the guy was doing, before getting punched. Anyway, you just don't see that very often.

You're right, Dave. A picture IS worth a thousand words. You are in fact MORE artistic than you would have us believe. In this rendering of the scene which you saw, you would have the viewer believe that the guy was some innocent guy, minding his own business and listening to music. While the woman is intent on damaging this guy, clearly the "evil doer", and with no apparent provocation, the aggressor. And even after she slugs the guy, he still stays a safe driver by keeping his eyes on the road. Hmmm.... fascinating. I believe the artist is making a commentary about the continuing, dynamic tension between men and women; the car and driving, being a microcosm of our greater society and time. Ladies? What do YOU think?

David that drawing is hilarious! I expected you to say that the guy proposed or something sweet and consistent with the "young couple" image. The punch was most unexpected. hehe. Ah, L'amor

LOL! The drawing is very good in fact. It is not the quality of the drawing, but the effectiveness. And I got the picture...lol!

I agree that the drawing is very effective and good. I think the guy was singing and perhaps getting on her nerves and because the tongue is like a sword, she used it with a powerful "PUNCH."

Now that we have given you our opinion of your drawing -- I'm sure that we all want to hear how close we are to stating what you saw. Very funny and cute post. LOL

Second Comment:

Wait a minute, wait a minute -- I had another thought. I know how we women hate to be ignored; therefore, I have another guess. Perhaps she was arguing with him and he was ignoring her by singing, therefore she lashed out at him very loudly to get her point across. ?????

Hey gig, thanks for stopping by. I have no idea how the guy set her off, but I was happy I was not that guy.
