On the Spectrum #55 - Another Brick...

(click to enlarge)

No profound symbolism was intended here, just some humorous scripting from Michael.  BTW, if you're old enough / young enough to get the joke here, let's keep it a secret from the whippersnappers / old fogies that don't get it, K? LOL.

If you're between the ages of 35 and 55 snd STILL don't get it, there's a clue that's about as subtle as a sledge hammer in the background behind Michael. ;)

On the Spectrum #54 - Backseat Driver

(click to enlarge)

This was very hard to draw. And the funny thing is that I decided to do this one because I thought the one I'd originally wanted to do tonight would be hard to draw! LOL.

I'm not sure how many of you see this sort of thing...  Every time we go by, for example, the Car Wash, Michael tells us "No Car Wash!"  Now, we haven't been into a car wash with him in like six years.  And there's one around the corner from our house.  So we drive by it 3-5 times a week at least.  So we've literally driven past it about a THOUSAND TIMES, never ONCE been IN IT (with him anyway) and he still feels the need to tell us!

On the Spectrum #53 - Twenty Questions

(click to enlarge)

He loves to volunteer his little brother for all the lousy chores, take the blame for something, etc... What older brother doesn't, huh? LOL. 

BTW, this game work just as well with multple "Yes" questions (Do you [good thing]? Do you [another good thing]? Do you [another good thing]?) Followed by a "No" question (Do you want to clean your room?) A good way to find out if they're really listening (and understanding) or not. 

You gotta love the, "Ye... NO!" asnwer. : )  Sometimes he misses it, but usually these days he's listening pretty closely and I can't slip one past him, even if I go really fast. Clever boy. : )
