95 – MYSTERY TOPIC

This one’s a Mystery! Thought it might be fun to keep the topic a Secret from you, seeing as I didn’t know what I was going to be talking about until co-host lil Dennis randomly pulled it out of my bag.

I used to do this all the time, about a year a go, and I forgot how hard but fun it can be. Really enjoyed this, it’s fascinating to see what the mind comes up with when it’s put on the spot.

Some of the tings I talk about include:
How Painting has a life of it’s own,
Running,
Honey and Lemon Lockets,
Toilet paper,
Mistakes,
Being Adaptable,
and Learning.

I also talk a bit about Boogies lol I wasn’t feeling very well during this one and one fell onto my drawing. Eww!

Hope you like.
