#solareclipse2017 I tried to make a wearable pinhole projector out of a cardboard box and Hailey saw me and started filming and narrating as if I was a disturbed, loitering stranger on the lawn and then I lost my balance and almost fell and my neighbor had been parked and watching me wearing a box on my head the whole time. Also, the thing I thought was the sun was a speck of styrofoam. WTF, me.
