You can drive my car, feel how it rolls, feel a new energy, as it quietly rolls– NY (my bff), singing about me (I love it when he does that). From “Just Singing A Song Won’t Change The World.”
LV in Wonderland
LV: I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!
Pearl: LV? Oh dear. What's happened?
LV: It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller.
Pearl: LV, you're not making any sense.
LV: It would be so nice if something made sense for a change!
Pearl: LV, would you please explain yourself? What is going on?
LV: I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see.
Pearl: Sir? What the ? LV! Have you gone completely mad?
LV: How do you know I'm mad?
Pearl: Ah. I think I see. LV, are things over there getting ... "curiouser and curiouser"?
LV: Oh Pearl! Finally. You see. I have fallen down the rabbit hole, I'm afraid.
Pearl: The rabbit hole.
LV: Yes. I'm TINY. Absolutely miniscule! Oh dear. Neil is going to be so disappointed. Now I am never going to be able to complete my mission, and it's all ...
Pearl: Whoa, whoa, hold on there, LV. What on God's green earth are you talking about, miniscule? You've ... shrunk? Like Alice in Wonderland.
LV: (whispering) YES!
Pearl: How do you know?
LV: (exasperated) Here. I'll take a picture. (click) Check my blog!
(LV waits while Pearl checks. Pearl returns to phone, laughing.)
LV: How can you laugh at a time like this?!
Pearl: Okay. Sorry, LV. The good news is, you have NOT shrunk. No, you have not.
LV: Do you not see the GIANT HOOD ORNAMENT NEXT TO ME, PEARL?
Pearl: Yes, LV, I see it. But it's not your hood ornament.
LV: (confused now) What?
Pearl: LV, that's not your hood ornament. You have not shrunk! That's a beautiful, giant emblem that resembles your hood ornament, just bigger; it's going somewhere else. Remember?
LV: Oh ... I thought ... I thought ...
Pearl: You thought it was your hood ornament and you had somehow shrunk, like Alice.
LV: (very small voice) Well . . . yes.
Pearl: Oh LV! You are really not used to your new spot there in the garage yet, are you. Listen, LV. You're okay. Everything's fine! This is very exciting! It's another beautiful thing for you!
Pearl: Aren't you excited?!
LV: Well after this I shall think nothing of falling down stairs.
Pearl: LV! No more Alice in Wonderland talk!
LV: Just kidding. Yes. Yes! I am. Excited. Thanks, Pearl. For setting me straight.
Pearl: No problem, LV. Hang in there.
LV: Bye Pearl.
Pearl: (smiling) Bye, LV.

Albert and I are kindred spirits in our attraction to wonder, and awe. It’s a powerful force in the universe. And I’m proud to be part of it. x LV

Chillin’ wit my homies. I’m a little giddy this morning, dear Blog. It’s just, well, being this close to the BatMobile and all … Actually, truth be known, just knowing that my friends are right here, with me, makes me giddy. What can I say? Really, it does. x LV
