...paying off my student loans. I had a graphic designer friend scan 11 of them into her computer.
She gave me a floppy disk (like I said it was the 90s) with the pictures and I printed up a handful of paper coloring books.
I went into Book People and traded the coloring books for a Townes' Van Zandt CD. Nowhere close to paying for a months worth of my student debt, much less the whole thing.
It was before the Zen doodling craze of the new millenium. I had no patience for nor skill at marketing.
The floppy disk went in a drawer and when it came out computers weren't capable of reading it anymore.
I wonder if anyone ever colored in one of those books title Prodigal Daughter or if they all ended up starting a fire or lining a compost bin.
