Guitar Picks are Elusive Little Jerks

I've started doing the drawings for the second installment of the "How to be a Hipster" series. It should be done in a couple of weeks. If it's not, that means I didn't make it through final exams.  Here's a little post while you wait.

Guitar picks are elusive little jerks.



Usually, when I need a pick, I can take one look at my floor and find one in plain site. Most of the time I even have a choice.



But recently I haven't been able to find ANY. I keep trying to use other things such as circular shaped earrings. Where have all my picks gone? I don't know, but they're probably in a black hole in my room along with all of the bobby pins and nailclippers I have ever purchased.

Last night, for example, I looked everywhere for a pick. When I finally found one, I dropped it while strumming, and it disappeared. It fell out of my hand and into the invisible guitar pick hiding place.




I looked everywhere and I could not for the life of me figure out where it had gone.





 







I've come to the conclusion that they slip into a fold in time and are never seen again.



That, or there's got to be some sort of guitar pick-eating monster under my bed that comes out at night and eats them all off the floor.


I JUST WANT TO PLAY GUITAR.

Well I know when I want to disappear, I usually just jump into a fold in time, too.

You don't?

Oh! That happens to me too! I'll sit there for like fifteen minutes shaking my guitar up and down trying to get te pick to fall out.

DUDE--that monster is HORRENDOUS. But I love it. Also the fold of time looks magical. You're funny, guy.

I used to drop mine in the hole in my acoustic all the time. Then I could play the maracas with it!

The pick monster resembles my dog.

Okay I know you don't know me but this made me laugh so hard. Have you seen the "Community" episode where Annie accuses everyone of stealing her purple pen?

Just a thought...

Hahahah!! I love how the pick-eating monster has nipples!

Also, I recently lost SIX picks at once. I looked for them for about 2 months, then finally ordered more from Amazon. The day they shipped to my door, I found the six missing pics. Those elusive little BASTARDS!

We have learned to keep ours on leashes.

If your guitar has a pick guard you could always put a couple of spare picks between the pick guard and guitar body.

I was going to say that they probably go to missing bobby pin land but you already said that. Wherever missing bobby pin land is, I bet there's a ton of single socks too.
