Many years later, I actually received that precious box of crayons as a gift from John. This is just one of several reasons why he is so awesome.

Lately, the more artistic side of my personality has been clamoring for attention and in order to appease it, I've been fooling around with paints. Specifically, a painting kit I received years ago for Christmas from John. Why a painting kit? I'm supposed to be a writer. I think it was perhaps I've always been drawn to arrays or pallets of colors, and as a kid, I always secretly longed for the Crayola box of 64 crayons with the built in sharpener. I never got them because I didn't whine loud enough or my parents thought that many crayons was silly, and besides I was just going to ruin them or worse, I was going to ruin something in the house. So my brother and I made do with the 16 or 24 pack.
