Interlude—from a defunct school book giveaway ...

FSG.NoDragons

Somehow, this is *not* a book about a young male prostitute.

Any guesses what Thomas's "toughest opponent yet" is (non-serious guesses welcome!)

It appears his toughest opponent is a herniated groin.

Incontinence? Lack of mousee?

Fashion.

Perspective - Unless he's leaning on a pyramid I suppose.

His left leg being about 3" longer than his right? Or maybe a goiter, judging by the shape of his neck (or that's one hell of an Adam's apple).

Well, we know it's not dragons. Minotaurs?

Got to wear long pants "winter is acummin in" (with apologies to Ezra Pound).

Too tight shorts?

His struggle to find GREAT hair gel with lasting hold!

Emily said...

A weak understanding of when it is appropriate to grab his crotch?

He looks like he's in dire need of a thunderbucket to fill.

Young Thomas (like Tom Hanks in the classic afterschool special "Mazes and Monsters" was addicted to Dungeons and Dragons. Unfortunately due to his awesome die rolling skills - note the obviously larger right hand, strengthened by the 20-sided dice he carries - he has slain every dragon there is to slay in the aforementioned game. He sits pensively outside the rec center awaiting the newest module to arrive, the first beads of sweat he has ever felt forming on his forehead, only to be dried with his ever-present towel, or as he refers to it, Binky. His toughest opponent - ennui.

Either that or he's in a Ted McGinley look-alike contest.

Sorry, the answer is "cancer." Thanks for playing!

Michael5000 said...

Well THAT's kind of a comedown.

Way to bring the room down, Rex.

Cancer, yes, Rex, but the cancer that was the bubble perm.
