A-to-Z Challenge: Stuttering (Kiss Me Again)

2badge

Look, I’m going to level with you all:  I’m hormonal, I have monstrous headache, I fell behind on chore and challenges, and a new OTP has eaten my brain, so today I wanted something quick, cute, and kinda goofy.

With this being said, a quick (like, fifteen minute) micron sketch.  (Also, I suck at facial hair, holy shit).

Stuttering (Kiss Me Again)*

It’s been, it’s been, it’s been, it’s been
Su su su such a long time, long time, long time
Since anybody touched me, touched me, touched me
The way that you touch me

So if I stutter, stutter, stutter

Then I feel so so so unsexy
So maybe I’ll just keep my mouth shut
at least until you kiss me
So kiss me again
Cause only you can stop this st st st st stuttering
Kiss me again
And ease my su su su su su su su su su suffering
I know I know
It’s so it’s so sy sy sy sy sy symbolic of everything
Everything that’s wrong with me and you
So tell me what I’m supposed to do
Oh it’s been ages since we’ve been really honest
But I can make ch ch ch ch changes if you really want this
So kiss me again
Cause only you can stop this st st st st stuttering
Kiss me again
And ease my su su su su su su su su su suffering
Kiss me again
Cause only you can stop this st st st st stuttering
Kiss me again
And ease my su su su su su su su su su suffering


* This song came utterly unbidden into my head as I was folding clothes, for no apparent reason.  Haven;t thought about it in years.  Incidentally, it was my custom ringtone for my husband when we first started dating.

Exhaustion

Here’s a disappointing and anti-climactic daily sketch:

This was done in about fifteen minutes, solely because I didn’t want to skip a day and not because I was particularly moved by the image.  The subtle curves of the handset and the fluorescent light glare off the plastic casing were hard to capture with the minimal shading I did, and the entire drawing is asymmetrical.  I don’t want to play the, “I wasn’t even trying,” card, but by the same token, I honestly wasn’t; I started this sketch knowing I was going to rush it, knowing I wasn’t going to devote the time and focus I’d devoted to the other daily sketches thus far.  Today hasn’t been a bad day, but oh my God, am I tired — I’ve been on my feet since 5:30 am, from classroom work to vocational training, the gym to the grocery store, and then home to cook dinner.  I just do not have the spoons to do anything more thoughtful tonight, but I don’t want to break the momentum.  Powering through and developing the habit is far more important than the products themselves right now.

So, no.  Not my best work, not my best effort.

Actually you might say I… phoned it in.

Thank you, I’ll let myself out.
