I'm Such a Nice Guy
No, seriously...I am. I'm a really nice guy. I'm not saying that I should be given an award or anything, but the fact remains that I am a decent, nice guy. Don't get me wrong, if you want to give me an award, that's fine with me...I won't turn it down.
My wife is a teacher and she moved to a new school this year, and out of the goodness of my heart I designed the schools logo...for free. Want to see it? CLICK HERE. Would a jerk do that? Nope. Would a nice guy? You better believe it bucko!
Not too long afterward one of the students in her class writes something in her reading journal about having trouble drawing noses, which prompts my wife to ask me, "Steven, would you do me a favor and draw some noses in her journal?" So I did. Turns out not only does the girl love the drawing, but the rest of the class does as well and wants me to draw something in all of their journals.
She has 30 kids in her class.
Being the nice guy that I am, I agree. (Not all at once mind, you...but a few a week).
Sound like something a jerk does? I think not.
It feels good knowing that I'm a nice guy. Good, and a little strange, because in all honesty, I wasn't that nice of a kid growing up. Maybe I'm just getting soft in my old age.
NOTE: The above sketch is just something that I'm tinkering with. Trying a different method of computer coloring. I'm still working out the bugs.
