I’ve recently found an area on the online community Reddit that’s called Reddit Gets Drawn. People submit pictures of themselves, and others sketch them.
It’s weirdly addictive to sort through these pictures for something that strikes a cord. And the recipients always seem happy with what they’ve received.
I’ve drawn a lot of these, but here are my top 4:
This child has a long and stylish Brooklyn life ahead of her.
This child is going to become a top-tier civil rights lawyer. She’s the sort of princess who would ensure more safety protocols for her 7 dwarfs.
This child is going to sail around the world in the style of Magellan, but in a yacht. He will high-five at least one mermaid of every species.
This child is going to run a vegan lifestyle blog called “Can’t Be Beet.” Not all recipes will involve beets — but many will.
I was an unstylish kid. I had a lot of jean shorts (“jorts”) and baggy t-shirts. I oscillated sharply between jumping in creeks and jumping in books.
I was not cool.
I am still not cool.
These kids have me beat. Or do they have me… “beet”?
