This task has a flaw. If you are telling the truth, you only need to tell a story, but if you are telling an invented story, you have to tell a story story. In this way everyone will know if you're lieing or not.

Where you see a flaw, I see a challenge.

Put a mark on yourself, then choose it for option two.

This has the problem that nobody will know you went with the cool option (which is already an option anyhow) unless you do it badly enough to be obvious.

And special effects makeup that looks good with shoddy camera work isn't so hard.

This story begins the Halloween of my 16th year, the day that my mother finally told me to get out of her house and not come back, and I, in a very silence of the lambs fashion, took my German Shepard (whom she wanted to abandon, and I fought over, a...

Sheet Worms Once there was a little boy named Naming. He didn't much like to make his bed. Obvious--why bother? You know what will happen again at night. Was he to waste his first motions of the day on something that would never be complete? Somethin...

For this task, "The Callouses On Your Hands", I would like to discuss the actual callouses on my hands. In those pictures it looks like I just kind of have dry skin. I traced the callouses and emphasized the thicker parts of them to really show ...

When I was in the fourth grade (about 9 years old) I had a best friend by the name of Deanna Johnson. Deanna was in several ways like me; tomboyish, dramatic, and far from the popular girls' standards of beauty. We got along and played together as mo...

A memento from 1989 1989 wasn't a particularly good year for me as I'm sure ninth grade wasn't the best year for anybody reading this. I had many problems with my life that now, looking back on them seem trivial, but in ninth grade they were eve...

As glimpsed in Player Photograph, Unorthodox Bath, & Everyday Life, these are my wings. When I was 14 or 15, I saw this picture (or one a lot like it): The visual impact of the scale and the way the lines accented the curves of her (I have n...

Part 1: I wish to God these marks were callouses or only on my hands. This proof is about a series of scars but I feel like they are connected, and if they aren’t, well, more power to me. I overdo it for points. (I want some level four superpowe...

Following is the story of how, nearly a year ago, I acquired the star-shaped scar on the center of my forehead. This praxis is slightly expounded from the original as related to my six year old niece. I enjoy night walking. No, I do not turn to ...

This scar hid a living being, a part of me that I live with every day. I had gone through most of my life wondering what it was that was sitting like double-wad of Bubble Yum on the ball of my thumb. It shifted to every part of my hand uncontrollabl...

It was October 1989 and I was in high school. (Here is a random shot from the seniors in my yearbook from that year.) The top song was “Miss You Much” by Janet Jackson and the original Batman movie had rocked the summer movie scene. Civil unr...
