Lauren and I have been awfully sick for the past several days (both of us with a fever). We've taken up the practice of wrapping cool damp towels around our heads to alleviate some of the discomfort. A couple of days ago, Lauren was walking to the bathroom with the towel wrapped around her head and face. She looked at me, put her arms up and melodiously called out "Booooooooo!" It was hilarious to me and I started really laughing. The image of her all wrapped up in a cold towel, fighting a fever and pretending to be a ghost was just classic!
"You're a fire ghost!" I told her (because of the fever) and then I immediately had a moment of pause. Fire Ghost. That's a cool idea. I got up out of bed and forced myself to quickly sketch out the image in my head. I think I'll use this character for something eventually.
