.. but he's certainly got a lot of spirit!
Oh boy! That title just came to me and yeah, it could be offensive, but this IS me we are talking about, and I like to think it does fit in with the actual caption.
Made it a few weeks ago, and knew it would be a blog exclusive, since I don't really know, nor particularly care, about what people on the Haven's religion is, to be honest. I just saw the picture, and thought it was a sweet pose, which deserved a sweet caption, and a Dad reluctantly supporting his possible in-the-future daughter felt like a great idea for a story. I do know that Catholics have First Communion (which happens around May, which was when I wrote this) and that Protestants do not, waiting until Confirmation for the kids to commit to, as do Catholics. Why they don't have first communion is beyond me, and perhaps someone will enlighten me below as to the reasoning.
I forgot to mention this last night, but it was partially inspired by a true story that came out of Germany, which you can read about by clicking HERE! It is entitled, "Dad Wears Skirt In Solidarity With His 5-Year-Old Son," and includes a cute photo of said boy and his father.
I thank those who commented in the post for "She Seems to Have an .. Invisible Touch!" and truthfully, I people came up with much more inventive stories that I did when making it!
The idea was to make it pretty vague, and let the reader decide if he was insane or not, implying all sorts of things by the way he and his friend interacted. Was he hypnotized? Psychotic break or drug induced hallucinations? Before I go on, I realized that I made a small mistake. It should have been, "Hurry up and take A picture," not, "Hurry up and take THE picture." Explanation will follow a bit later in this post.
The photo was set up perfectly for the "invisible woman" to be seated next to her/him .. so that was my thought from the get go, that there would be that set up in the caption. My thought in telling lies is this ... if you push ahead with the fabrication full steam ahead, no matter how ludicrous it is, and no matter how many people have seen something to the contrary .. if you sell it over the top, it will be believed by others, especially if you can convince "yourself. I know the theory is called "The Big Lie" and was used by Hitler, but it has been used by others.
Anyway, for me, the plot was that our Karensue was out having fun dressed in female clothing, figuring she was far enough away from her regular haunts that no one would know her, and with being in the public, she'd have her anonymity amongst the crowd. She spotted him though before he noticed her so ... big lie told as convincingly as possible .. more likely as a stall tactic, but definitely a diversion. AND perhaps he'll end up with a photo of Reggie's vanity cruise for posterity. "I was with my girlfriend" can still be his cover story as its his word against his friends. Where is his GF now? "Dude was such a jerk to her she ran off. I'm hoping we can patch things up, but what girl wants to be called a dyke for dressing up like a man, etc ..." and if the picture is shared, Reggie can still laugh it off if he wants, by backing up his original fib.
That small mistake is that when I used "the" it made it sound like they were posing, while "a" would be more in tune with the whole, "take a picture quick!" like if wanted a memento of a child riding a bike without training wheels for the first time. I hope that makes sense to everyone.
So yeah, everyone had much better plots for what happened than my whole thought, which was he got caught and told a whopper of a tall tale for misdirection. Now that I've taken all the magic out of the caption, I know it is like finding out your favorite magician used camera tricks, right? Well, I still have some smoke, mirrors, and flexible women to throw you off my trail!
Since it's a blog exclusive, let me know what you think about the posted caption.
Will it walk heaven's trail, or should it be sent to devil's island?!?
