Last year, in June or so, my cousin told me that if I was going to get her anything for Christmas I should just paint her a pink elephant. I thought it was a cute idea so I agreed.
She told me in June.
On January 2 (the day we were to celebrate Christmas with my father’s side of the family), at around 11 AM, I realized I had not yet painted that pink elephant.
On Black Friday I had gone out to Michaels and gotten a canvas board on which to paint said pink elephant, but suddenly we were leaving in less than 2 hours to go to my cousins’ house and I had not even started painting yet.
