for the last 31 or 30 days, i’ve been doing this draw a profile picture for facebook thing everyday. on may 25th (i guess 30 days), i saw a video of the news reporting about crazy high schoolers dressing up as werewolves and having a little werewolf cult. and a guy was quoted saying, “i dont believe everyone is just human. everyone has just got something else in them.” then i told person x that i was an apple inside. i had the brilliant idea to draw an apple and write “nrhrhrhhrhrhrhr” next to it. and i made it my profile picture.
the next day, person y said, “i hate apples.” whine whine whine whine whine. “but i like apple juice.” so i had no choice but to change my profile picture to apple juice.
soon after, person x responded with “wowowowowowowowowwowowowow” maybe not like that, but i had to change it again. then i had a brilliant idea to draw something everyday in a way that connects all the pictures. i was originally going to post the next day, but thats at 12 am, and i’m lazy and might forget, so it became 11:30 pm same day. so number 3 was on the same day.
so i had a new picture everyday at 11:30. eventually i got to 31. why 31? it’s like a month. but a month is usually 30 days. but 31 is a prime number. so life is good.
