This evening I was asked to show some photos of my offspring from visiting day. When I said, “most of my pictures are on my camera,” I then added, “I ordered three 24″ x 36 canvases” (Groupon).
At that, my friends asked to see which photos were being enlarged. As I opened the website to go through my order to show them the exact one, it went like this:
Me: I blew this one up.
Me: I’m pretty sure I chose this one.
Friend: (polite smile with head tilt)
Me: Yep, I chose this one.
Mother: Mmmmm. Mmmmm. That’s not such a good picture of her.
Now, I spent hours choosing which three pictures out of 30 to enlarge; I ordered one of the largest sizes – slightly below that of a billboard, and the best compliment I got was the sound of silence??
