This week, Haylee of Aloada Bobbins asked the Moodle Army to step outside its collective comfort zones. She suggested moodling with a mouth, foot, or non-dominant hand, in each case, preferably one’s own.
I left a comment:
“So many possibilities. If I use my feet, there will be double the discomfort — first, trying something so untried, and second, the sockless cold. Brrr!” Me, hating cold feet.
In response, our Glorious Leader challenged me directly:
“Then I shall expect a Moodle from you using pens held in your mouth! 😉“ Moodle Army 5 ✮ General, aka Hair-Power Haylee
Honestly, I gave the daft (for me) idea the consideration it deserved, but the ethereal voice of my long-departed mother kept chiding me:
“Never put anything in your mouth but food.” Mom
I confess, I didn’t always follow Mom’s instructions while she was alive and in charge of me, and I may or may not have ignored them even more frequently after I began adulting on my own, but now this cherished memory of her wisdom gave me the excuse I needed to not draw with pens held in my mouth. Sorry, Haylee. (Thanks, Mom!)
Although I have learned to quiet the left hemisphere of my brain and let the right hemisphere run free for creativity’s sake, I am right-handed. This moodle is the result of stepping outside my comfort zone, drawn entirely with my left hand, including my scratchy little signature. (I added the caption after the drawing was complete.)
