Sunday Scribblings – #102 Sculpture

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Every Wednesday, blogging buddy Aaron over at The Confusing Middle posts a “Sunday Scribblings” prompt for other bloggers to ponder and respond to on the following Sunday. If you’re a blogger looking for more inspiration, I highly recommend jumping in and joining in on the fun!

This week’s prompt is: Sculpture!

First of all, I spent the entire week trying to remember whether this week’s prompt was “sculpture” or “statue.” Even as I’m typing this, I’m second-guessing myself…

As is often the case with the Sunday Scribblings prompt, I went into it not knowing whether I would have anything to say. Did I have a story about a statue…or rather, a sculpture? Would I just ramble until I finally came up with something random? Who knows!

The problem is that there’s no way to search my memories and come up with something about statues…I mean sculptures. Why can’t brains be like Google Drive where you can search key terms? Come to find out, there is a way to search your memories, and it is called Facebook profile search. You just type in a search term and images/posts that you’ve posted containing it pop up! It’s deeply upsetting!

While this is absolutely terrifying on one hand, I must admit that it turned out to be quite fruitful! When my French friend Nora was studying at my college in the US, she joined my family for Thanksgiving, so of course we took her (along with some of my other friends) to do all of the touristy things in Philly. One of the stops on our tour was the National Constitution Center. I’m not going to lie, I don’t remember much of that outing, but luckily the most important part is the part I have photographic evidence of: Signer’s Hall.

Signer’s Hall in the National Constitution Center is a room that has 42 life-sized bronze statues of the signers of the US Constitution…and they’re all posed in various ways…which makes them excellent subjects for weird pictures. And excellent subjects for a Sunday Scribblings post where the prompt is statues…I mean sculptures!

Like any group of friends surrounded by dignified bronze statues of political figures, we couldn’t help but to pose with them in strange (and not at all appropriate) ways. I hope you enjoy our pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them!

It’s only a dollar, he probably won’t notice…

Nothing like posing seductively with bronze statues!

Or posing inquisitively with bronze statues? 🤔

I don’t…yeah, I’m not going to caption this one. This was never supposed to see the light of day…

This is also how I look at butts!

Okay, so I know that this is the featured image of the post as well, but I just had to add it here as well because I love it so much. Catch our album (Code Word: Rochambeau) dropping later this year.
