D is for Duct Tape, or a lesson in style

On Erica's first day of her residency at the ER, she found her car had been broken into during the night before, and title and insurance cards stolen. She was left with a pile of glass inside and outside the car and a wounded sense of justice. We like to refer to it as 'The Army of Wrongness' on the move again--if you've read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's you know just what I'm talking about. So, armed with a clear shower curtain and duct tape, this is how she shook her fist at stupidity. Who knew there could be such stylish duct tape!?

Or as Orson Welles said, “Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” More D words to see at ABC Wednesday.

Sorry that happened. She certainly responded in a creative fashion. Duct tape has amazing uses.

Well that sucks. Tell her to make sure she watches her bank account because (I dont mean to make you worry more but .. ) anyone possessing those forms of 'ID' can do damage/steal her identity .. scary times ...

but her fix is super!

Ha-That is stylish duct tape. I saw a contest where kids made their prom outfits all out of colored duct tape and they were amazing! Your blog is pretty fun, too. Great photos, literate, thoughtful, and a cool take on life.

Dang. I hate when that happens. The tape is a stroke of artistic genius. I have a roll of red for patching my ancient red boots. Maybe I should branch out for a little more style. :)
