Your challenge — your final challenge — is to post a photo of your lace being proudly worn or displayed by the strangest, funniest, or most unlikely model you can find…. [Pets are disqualified.]
Okay, so this one stumped me. My first thought, which would’ve been great fun but I am a total coward, was my neighbor Jack. I imagined him on his Harley with his cigarette in his mouth and his t-shirt off and his tattoos showing, wearing Cozy. It would’ve been a great shot. But like I said, I’m a coward. There was just no way I could get up the nerve to ask that man to wear my shawl.
My second thought came when I was at the zoo with my boys. In the petting zoo part, I was easily within throwing distance of pot-bellied pigs and alpacas (how cute would that have been?). The drawback was, once thrown, how would I get the thing back? I could’ve gone for the goats, which we could walk right up to and pet, but still I hesitated. Mainly because I failed to bring my shawl with me to the zoo.
My Old Man would’ve been an easy unlikely model, but I figure a lot of other challenge participants are going with spouses. And statues. Plenty of statues around here but other people have already done that, and better than I could’ve.
So I thought and thought and thought. And I realized who was the most unlikely model of all.
