At our last, super fun, although poorly-attended, show in Athens, Ohio, Flotation Walls painstakingly brainstormed this challenge. And then we got a new job, wrote a grant and left our guitar at the venue. And then we forgot about it.
But tonight, after a long, nasty, decidedly NSFW, but not at all erotic, promotional photo shoot, we did happen to remember what it was like to be weird and inappropriate little kids who liked to get gross and play around in the dirt.
I was never much of a mucketeer myself. In fact, sometimes I still turn red when I think about the times in my youth when someone caught me in the middle of gross. I once threw up during a citywide children's choir rehearsal on the stage of Roy Thompson Hall. Another time, teacher caught me picking my nose in class and called me out about it (oops! I was just scratching...).
Anyway, on behalf of my band, and in keeping with the spirit of the evening, we'd like you to reproduce a childhood memory. A fond childhood memory. A fond childhood memory of doing something that made you dirty. And if you were one of the kids who, like me, never played with worms and always stepped over puddles and don't have any fond mudpie memories, please relate the most mortifying mess you ever made.
So, this week's challenge is a lot more creative writing and a lot less research paper. Take full advantage of this opportunity: don't read the news, don't cite your sources, and, for god's sake, don't be relevant! Be irrelevant! Just tell us a story from your childhood.
And make it a dirty one. ;)
