tonight, while penn was having "naked time" he went to the front door with benji in tow. i was sitting on the couch making myself a new wallet. i heard, "yes, penn that's outside. but, you can't go outside because you're naked. well. i guess it doesn't matter that your naked. but it's chilly. so you can't go outside because it's chilly. well. it's not that chilly. and you really want to go outside, don't you. okay. let's go outside!"
one minute later benji came bursting through the door and yelled "HONEYGOGETTHECAMERA!" and then he ran away. that phrase means emergency kodak moment is happening so run like your panties are on fire. i ran. it's an automated response. i ran, got the camera, and turned it on as i rounded the corner. one of the most remarkable things about my beloved nikon d70 is that it is ready to take a picture before you can get your finger from the on button to the shutter button. i ran all the while thinking, "what's wrong with you, go back and protect that naked child standing against the rail!"
little naked penn was standing beneath the recessed spotlight, buns out and glowing. i took a picture, as you can see, but it wasn't enough light and i haven't figured how to take a non-blurry picture in such circumstances.
cute nonetheless though, i think.
