Fool, You Fool!

After class this evening Jessica, one of my students at Cornish College of the Arts, showed me her rough sketch for the next assignment, and asked if I wanted an Oreo. “No, thanks.” We talked about the character she’d drawn (“a tough exterior but she’s sweet, how might that play out?”) and she offered me an Oreo again. “No, no thanks.” Then soon a third time, “Are you sure you don’t want an Oreo?” Uh… no?

Turns out she’d filled the one she was offering with toothpaste. Happy April Fool’s Day! She said she’d done the same thing to classmate Luke, and he took a bite, but he then liked it and ate the whole thing.
