Exorcism on Enrose Street

I feel so much better now that I have rid my home of an evil presence.  

Namely, this
This atrocity has been haunting my home for nearly a year.  My son Joey innocently brought it home from a scavenger hunt, not realizing the effect it would have on all of us.  

This "couch size" horror was painted by someone under the influence of fermented cactus jelly purchased in the "Hi Jolly Arizona Gift Shop".  Dripping with pink and turquoise, it cast a spell of touristiness that caused us to desire t-shirts with kokopelli and howling coyotes.  We found ourselves driving 15 miles per hour with our blinkers on, saying "Hey, would ya look at those cacti with their arms all up in the air!" We laid out by the pool side in January and wore our fiery sunburns underneath our khaki shorts and golf shirts.

But that is all over now.  We are free

If you want your own haunted house, go to Goodwill and you can buy it back.

Poor Joey.

Seems like his hopes for becoming America's Top Interior Decorator are squashed.

I gave one that was not dissimilar to a home consignment store, and no one would even buy it.

PS. You'd think the frame would have been worth something, but no...not even one nibble!

That is hysterical. And I'm not gonna lie, pretty sure my parents have some very simliar pics floating around their house. Glad you were able to rid your home of the atrocity.
