I'm a Freakin' Supergenius!!
Okay, so. When I got my Giant Metal Chicken for my 40th Birfday, I of course, took pictures & posted them to Twitter & FB. My Mother posted a comment professing her admiration of Gwenyth and asked me "Are you going to take her everywhere you go??" Sadly, due to the fact that Gwennie is close to 5 feet tall and METAL, I think the folks at the airport will be less than thrilled. I considered going over to The Bloggess' site and ordering a Beyonce' statuette to take places with me and photograph then it hit me. FLAT GWENYTH!! Oh. My. Gawd!! I am a Freakin' Supergenius!! It's be like Flat Stanley but in Chicken form!! For those of you not in the know, Flat Stanley is a small, laminated cartoon boy who gets mailed around to different schools all over the place. One kid gets to take Flat Stanley around town to "See the Sights" and have Stanley's picture taken with local landmarks. The photos then get printed out with a brief overview of Stanley's stay in that city and mailed back to wherever he came from. Or his next destination. I get a little cloudy on that. We never had Flat Stanley visit us. We got the class Teddy Bear once. THAT was a HUGE pain in the ass on a school night, lemme tell ya. Anyways, I have this stroke of genius that is Flat Gwenyth. I can take her ANYWHERE then!! Into the airport, on a plane, in the car, on a train... You get where I'm going. I immediately text my oldest (as in I have known her longer than anyone else) friend Marti and send simply this: I just had the best idea EV-ER!!! FLAT GWENYTH!! Marti's response?? Not one of confusion. No "What the HELL are you talking about woman??" Marti's response: OMG...that is a great idea!!! You're a genuis!! For real. Now I just need a good picture of Gwenyth & a laminating machine & I'm in business. Look for the adventures of Flat Gwenyth coming soon. Her first trip: MONTANA!!
