i.d.

Standard

why yes, i’m happy to wait here all day while you check my i.d.

i’ll just stand right by this alert and tan in the glow of its light.

take all the time you need. i’ll hang out for a few minutes longer.

thanks so much for sending help.

does anyone else have this message on their screen?

oh?

great policy.

through my fingers.

Standard

maurice sendak’s

“where the wild things are”

was initially pitched as

 “where the wild horses are”

his editor loved the pitch but

sendak could not draw horses

so the wild things he drew

ended up being

caricatures of his relatives.
