I can’t draw a horse for shit. I took a workshop by a very knowledgeable artist who clearly was a horseman. Didn’t take. You would think I could draw a car since that is what we ride everyday. Nope, can’t draw them very well either. Well, what does that leave? I’m thinking walnuts. But they have a bumpy surface so I guess I’m left with a grape. That is what Lisa does.
This pony reminds me of 38 weeks of school, 8 hours a day in the Navy. Every week we had a test. Sometimes we would know the questions and answers before the test. Maybe the word ‘pony’ came from the instructor that would stomp his foot when a question was going to be on the test.
We would call these tips “ponies” and ask each other before the test if we had any ponies to ride. Ethics aside, and they always were way aside, there is is nice warm fuzzy feeling about knowing the answer to a question in advance.
I passed that school and went on to become a nearly world famous scientist. I’m currently looking for investors in my “warm” fusion project. The payout is ENORMOUS now don’t be a weak investor and get this mixed up with payback.
Eagerly awaiting your envestment. The Right Reverended Shifty Greenbacks.
