a bag over the head is not just for ugly people


the above print by this artist (discovered via this blog) reminded me of this story:

when i was little, one of my favorite playtime personas was “baghead”. it would consist of my mother coming home from the grocery store and me begging her to cut a face-shaped hole in one of the paper bags. when she complied, i would gleefully put the bag over my head and, all of a sudden…i was inside a television! it provided endless entertainment.

this entertainment continues into current day as there is an all-time classic kranz home video of little toddler alison, wearing a crooked baghead and high-pitchedly slurring her abcs. one day, when i discover vhs to dvd to youtube transfer i will post it here, for all my readers’ amusement. until that day, feel free to visit my parents and ask to watch it. they’d enjoy the company.
