Yesterday I told someone I had some ideas to flesh out and I watched their face cringe a little. Gross huh? Fleshing out ideas. Each time I say it or hear someone else say “fleshing out an idea,” I have this mental picture of a woman in a white lab coat and safety goggles applying thick clay to a figure head. Like they do in CSI.
“Hm, yes, this fleshy idea looks good… oh wait, I don’t think I want this fleshy section right here. Yes this is better. This idea sure is fleshy.”
So, for the rest of the week I will work on fleshing out my ideas. I’m seriously considering making some paper mache heads since I prefer paper mache to thick clay. Pinata anyone?
