I Rest My Case


JD: Can you please rinse out the bowl after you eat cereal?
Me: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
JD: You never rinse your bowl…
Me: But I don’t use a bowl…I use A MUG. Big difference. Huge. And you shouldn’t use the word ‘never’…
JD: Jasmine, please don’t start.
Me: But I might get confused in the future if, say, I eat cereal from my mug and then don’t feel like washing it because it’s not a bowl.

This conversation just happened. And it made me feel very legal-ish. I wanted to add Your Honor somewhere in the conversation, but I left it out because that’s just weird. I mean, who was I even talking to? I, apparently, thought I sounded so Law&Order…and got carried away with myself. Next thing you know, I’ll be asking Elliott Gould for evidence.

This morning I woke a watched a portion of the creativeLIVE rewatch that aired the wedding photography course I taught a couple months ago. It was the first time I had seen any portion of course. I turned to JD every couple minutes and asked, I did not just say that, did I?!? Uhhh, wow. Thank you for still being my friend. I annoyed myself, so how many of you stayed with me during the five-day is beyond my comprehension, but appreciated nevertheless.

creativeLIVE has been rebroadcasting free portions of various online courses, but they’re also offering all the courses for a year-end sale. Included are many amazing instructors so if you’re interested in video, studio lighting, children’s photography, experimental portraiture, or finding your vision, definitely take a look at what’s available.

The best part of this story is that whist having the conversation with JD, he rinsed the mug (See how easy this is?!) and placed it in the dishwasher.
