Firebug Fun Fact

My wonderful neice sent me a picture of some Firebug fan art this afternoon and besides being overwhelmed with pure joy (I never get fan art! Bonus that my neice spent her time making me a picture! Eeeee!) it reminded me of a Firebug fun fact that I don't think I've shared. In the picture that my neice drew, Ava wears a T-shirt Lock buys in a gas station. While I made up the slogans on the pants, the shirts were based on actual shirts. Shirts that I bought with some friends on the way to Fairhope, Alabama for a writing conference.

I purchased the shirt Ava ends up wearing. My friend, David Parker, has Lock's shirt. And Jen Violi (author of Putting Makeup on Dead People) is wearing a shirt that says, "I'm such a bad girl" and it has devil horns on it. In hindsight, I should have figured out a way for Ezra to be wearing Jen's shirt. Ah, well. I'm not sure when this picture was taken, but I can tell in was years ago because Parker and I have less tattoos, and Jen's hair is now short and --last I checked--blue.

I miss these two folks and the rest of my New Orleans buddies like nobody's business.
