Shrub Monkeys 126

Ah yes, the magical flashlight reading fort. I was hit with a bit of nostalgia thinking about my childhood... did any of you guys have those giant yellow playskool colour changing flashlights back in the day? [link] (Looking at the photo reference now I see that I drew it totally wrong in panel 2, but I was going from memory, so it was MORE PURE dammit!!)

I used it in my reading fort all the time. The light would keep dimming from eating up batteries, and my arm would shake from the strain of holding it up all night, fingers grasping the "on button" in a sweaty death grip, but it came with sweet colour changing options! When reading comics it was set to plain white for the normal sequences/pages, "green" for weird story parts or "red" for action or frightening scenes. Gooooood times. GOOD TIMES.

You have beautiful hair and cute little feet - and does your boyfriend ever take off his hat?

I HAD THAT FLASHLIGHT, AND I WOULD NEVER LET GO OF IT. And and and I would almost suffocate in my fort every time because there was limited air flow and it would get very stuffy very fast haha!

*cough* Maybe I was a bit too enthusiastic there... But thanks for making my day over and over again! C:

If it makes you feel any better, the torch you drew in the 2nd panel looks just like a torch I had as a child. :D
