Good Literature Ruined My Kid’s Artwork

My son yells with pride: Mama, I drew a giant star!


My brain, being a huge Kurt Vonnegut fan, thinks: Awesome. My son drew a giant @sshole in front of our house.

Thanks a lot, Breakfast of Champions.

PS. I included an amazon link for Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut because, if you haven’t read it, it’s totally worth ruining your kid’s artwork. Also, the drawing I’m referring to is on page 5 of the “Look Inside” link.

PPS. This post is pretty much why I blog.

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I clicked the link, read the preview, and am wondering how it is I have not heard of this book before.


  2. Well, I mean the bricks are kind of pinkish. Yeah. It’s an a$$hole. I love that book, just recommended it to someone the other day.

  3. Oh.My.God. That made me choke on my yogurt. That was one of those books that I started reading in the morning and kept at it straight through until I finished it at 8 pm that same day.

    Thanks for the laugh. That was 8,000 shades of awesome.
