Fridge Artist...

In this interview with Robert Fulghum (skip to 26:49 and thanks ExJw for the link), he says:

"I often say that I will never win the Pulitzer Prize or the Nobel Prize but I won the Refrigerator Door Prize. And I'll take that. No one ever puts Faulkner on the Fridge door."

Years ago, I was at a flea market and there at one of the booths was a young girl, maybe 8 or 9, sitting behind a table with a sign that said, "Fridge Art". Displayed were about twenty drawings she'd made herself, for the bargain price of 25 cents each. I picked up a couple. Still have them.

As I weave my way through the Rubbermaid archives I am finding a large collection of fridge art from various children I've known over the years. And I am reminded that there's a fridge artist in all of us just waiting to set up shop.
