After a slightly disastrous bit of manscaping on the day I am having a portrait taken, I was trying to disguise the damage I had caused. I tried putting a hat on. I thought it improved the whole look from disaster to merely “Mishap”.

Me: “Lucinda, does this look better?”
Lucinda: “You still look like a bug eyed dog begging for pizza. But it’s slightly better.”

Feeling grateful

Some days you just feel very grateful for the friends you have. Like now, hanging this painting by my friend Bruce Taylor. What a birthday present.

get to school.
