A mind of his own
In case you are wondering what happened to all of your great ideas for workouts, I have been giving serious consideration to each and every one, and I think that might take me at least two more years because there were so many suggestions.
I was also floored by the outpouring of suggestions for how to turn a Bed, Bath & Beyond shopping bag into a Halloween costume. Wow, you guys sure are crafty! I also have a lot of those twisty-tie things that come with garbage bags floating around the kitchen. You think maybe there's something I can do with those?
I had my favorites—Harold & The Purple Crayon, a bunch of grapes, a blueberry, a raisin, a shopping bag and, of course, The Color Purple (I wasn't sure, though, that Max could pass for Oprah Winfrey). But it didn't matter what I wanted. Because Max has purple on the brain, and he had a vision. I ran the suggestions by Max, illustrated by some photos I'd find online. He considered them all (maybe not quite as thoroughly as I have been mulling over the exercise possibilities), and made a split-second decision. I do not want to give it away here, but I'll just say that to those of you who know Max, you will not be so surprised.
