I’m not a photographer, but when I noticed that WordPress’ theme for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is “Wrong,” I just couldn’t resist playing along — it fits too well with the latest blog post I’m working on. So, here I’ll use the Photo Challenge as a “preview” for my next story about our quirky life [to be posted in the next few days, I swear].
The Weekly Photo Challenge is simple – post photos that in some way embody the theme for the week. So, here they are. These photos define “Wrong” from my son’s perspective, who lives by his own unique set of rules. And they reveal how he – almost daily – fixes things in his world to make them “Right.”
Just three examples for now:
One: The revolving “aquarium” nightlight on my son’s dresser in its “off” position.
On the right is how the aquarium looks when turned off. Always. No matter how long one has to stand there watching the scene revolve, waiting for the fish to be in just the right place before you flip the switch.
Two: My son’s deodorant.
Oh sure, the cap fits on the top exactly the same no matter which direction it is facing. But there’s only one way it truly looks right. It’s clinically proven.
Three: The desktop on my computer, before the screensaver takes over.
See it? I’m telling you, the sight of that lefthand screenshot will get my kid moving across the room faster than the smell of fresh-baked cookies. Luckily, he is here to fix it for me, because I am forever getting it “wrong.”
And, that’s my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge….More on this theme in my next post! Oh yeah, it’s fun around here…
