Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Or day. Shark Day it is I guess. Although who knows? Maybe there will be a bevy of requests this week involving shark varieties. Whatever - we are having fun with a generic great white this morning, cruising the sea floor in his search for...I don't know. License plates? Tires? I always revert to the Jaws game I had as a little kid based on the classic Spielberg film - you may remember the one where you fish the debris out of the shark's mouth before it closes. It begs the question: why were there so many car parts in the ocean in the 70's? Oscar digs the drawing, but has retrieved his anatomical shark model from his room as a reference. Yeah, I don't have time to draw a spleen, I tell him - this may have to wait until tomorrow. "Can you make it a hammerhead?" he asks. Perhaps. To be continued...Happy Tuesday xoxo
