After spending hours carefully crafting a “Vampire at the Kentucky Derby” illustration, I realized I had no idea what to write.
So I asked Facebook.
This was the winner:
And here’s the winner again, in a brighter color palette:
My friend Laura’s husband, David, suggested the theme of fitting in with big sun hats; and Tara wrote “They’re just as dead inside as I am!”
There were suggestions for giving her a sunburn and/or making her lament not wearing a yet bigger hat. People were fixated on her “ballin’ ass hat.”
A few other good ideas:
- “Mint julep? I asked for a Bloody Mary.”
- “Talk about fast food.”
- “It’s times like this I don’t mind not hanging around with Catherine the Great.”
- “I married a rich, white vampire and don’t know what to do with my eternity.”
Anyway, that was a fun little exercise. One that exploded my entire Facebook feed for 12 hours.
Maybe I should always crowd-source my thinking. It’s much easier than coming up with original content.
