Four Penny

Time for yet another installment of ‘unusual’  conversations heard only here!

Annabelle: “Are you okay up there?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Annabelle: ” Because you’ve been up there for quite a while…”

Me: “Yeah.”


Annabelle: “So what are you doing?”

Me: “Just poking a few pounds of nails through a piece of cardboard.”

Annabelle: “Oh. Okay, have fun.”

  1. LOL… You should have heard some of the conversation I had whilst preparing my trouble at the salon shot… I think it’s probably best all round if I don’t recount that in public… lol… But with shots like these as the end result, these odd conversations are worth the sacrifice… 😉

    • Hahaha… glad I’m not the only one, F.S.! I completely agree with you, though! And sometimes a bit of craziness can keep things interesting… keeps people on their toes, you know! 🙂

  2. AHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! True story people. This happened. Welcome to life in our household! 😛

    P.S. Awesome picture babe!

  3. I’m no suck up. I don’t get it. What do the words in the image have to do with pounded nails?

    Oh wait it is the definition of nail. NM haha

    • Ha – yeah, it’s pretty faint, Bearman…
      I’m using it for additional texture more than anything else. On the plus side, it looks like you aren’t farsighted! 🙂

    • That’s nice at times, isn’t it? Especially for me!

      Thanks so much, Juana – this took forever to set-up, but it was a lot of fun! Well, for a while it was VERY boring, but it got a lot better! 🙂

  4. Excellent set up shot SIG. I thought they were pencils to start with, too. My next thought was bed of nails. My third thought was that I don’t understand the title but that maybe I would if I were American. 🙂

    • Thank you very much, S.E. – they do look a bit like pencils… or a lawn gone bad?!
      The term ‘Penny’ was/is used to designate different sizes of nails… ‘d’ is an abbreviation for penny…
      I’m a little fuzzy on the history / details of all that (seems like I’ve read different explanations from different sources…) 🙂

  5. Love this! Oh, and my usual conversation goes like this:

    Me: Jim, did you eat the cupcakes on the counter?
    Jim: Yeah, why?
    Me: I was going to use them for a photoshoot.
    Jim: Well why didn’t you do that earlier?
    Me: I was waiting for the softer light in the window.

  6. Hahaha…
    Annabelle and I have had a similar conversation, too… only there was more sign language involved since my mouth was full-o-cupcake at the time!
    Many thanks Bob! 🙂
