Illustration Friday: Geeky

I suspect sometimes that I am geeky when I notice my children distancing themselves from me at the grocery store. Or perhaps it is just the heat. The water temperature in my pool is 90 degrees. This sounds hot, but when the air temperature is 115, it becomes rather refreshing. The thermostat on my car showed it to be 122 the other day. It's a little hard to imagine, but consider what it would feel like to have 37 of your closest friends all pointing their blowdriers at you on high. Why 37? I just made that up. Anyway, the weather brings out the geekiness in my attire, because basically, I don't care so long as I can be reasonably cool. I wear a large straw hat to keep from crisping. I'm at the time of life that I am on the precipice between being ripe and rotting, so the hat is there to ward off the fruit flies. Anyway, I have chosen this other rather geeky fellow to join me for Illustration Friday. I hope you like him. *

I like it. Is that an old library book checkout page for the background? Quite appropriate.

122! 122! I had to say it twice. That is just way too hot. I can't even imagine. Your water temp is as hot as it ever gets around here. Love the geeky fellow!

This picture reminds me of my great uncles-colorless old guys by the time I knew them but gamblas, womenizahs, neer do wells of all types in their youth.
