Okay, so as you all know, this week we are to post a picture and the views of two separate individuals upon seeing said picture. For my picture, I chose a scene entitled “family living.” For the second opinion on the picture, I chose my husband (or “Husband” as he appears below).
So, to start – here is the picture:
Hmm… lots going on here. First of all, the parents are clearly self-absorbed. Note that there is only furniture for them – the children are forced to play by the very dangerous fireplace that not only doesn’t have a grate but doesn’t seem to have a hearth either. From the looks of it, the children have built some kind of robot, no doubt as a replacement for the lack of nurturing parental contact. In fact, wouldn’t be surprised if in desperation for a loving adult figure they have created one to fill the void in their home. Based on the almost idiotic smiles on the parents’ faces, I suspect some kind of drug abuse. This would also explain why the mother has fashioned an outfit out of the spare set of slipcovers for the couch and the father is wearing that sweater. The house is also unnaturally clean suggesting an unnatural obsession with order. I’m not sure what the father is reading, but the mechanism on the table in front of him looks suspiciously like a bomb. Perhaps he is building one and the material in his hands is a manual of sorts. This would explain the children’s skill in building a robot – perhaps they are a mechanically inclined family and the children have not yet learned to use their talent for evil.
However, the more I study this picture, the more I am convinced that these “parents” are actually criminals and their family is nothing more than a cover. How else could you explain the mind-boggling hideousness of the room’s decor? Drug abuse only explains so much. It does not for instance explain away that wallpaper or those prints. Yes, after a careful study of the picture my conclusion is that the parents depicted are criminals from another country. I would venture to guess that this country does not have access to sophisticated resources as they have apparently sent operatives who attempted to infiltrate and blend into society based on a Sears’ catalog from the early 80s’.
Hey, is that the Redskins playing?
