Man standing beside a headless lion statue

There’s a photo of me that makes me laugh every time I see it. I don’t know why I enjoy it so much. Maybe it’s because it represents the silly part of my personality that I don’t show to many people. Only my wife knows how silly I can be now that I think about it.

She and I were in an art museum in Baltimore for her birthday. We were having a good time just walking around the space. We came upon this statue of a lion in an Egyptian exhibit, and its head was missing. My first thought was to have her take a picture of me standing beside the statue so that my head looked like its head. We waited until no one was around and then she did. We both died laughing.

It’s those kinds of moments, you know? Those are what make life fun.
