If you follow this blog, you know I favor young men who are on the “willowy” side — slender types. But someone sent me the photo I’ve posted here and I thought everyone would enjoy it. I know I find it stimulating. Look at the muscles on the guy on the right. Aye-yi-yi.
I think it’s always interesting, when looking at amateur photographs, to look at things in the background of the photo. They provide clues to who the subject is. In this case, notice the stolen road sign, the high school graduation tassel, the messy bed and the absence of artwork on the walls. And what’s that green, drape-like thing with the huge numbers on it? Something else stolen?
I think the guy’s clearly a college student, probably a fraternity boy, and he’s either drunk or hungover from the night before. Either way, he doesn’t look like he’s having much fun, does he?
I just walked outside to retrieve my newspaper and . . . yuck. It’s so hot and humid. Last night, after dinner, we sat on our back porch and it was pleasant, but that was around ten PM. Now the sun’s up and it’s going to be a scorcher. I think I’ll skip the beach today; it’s just too warm down there. I’ll write, do a bit of reading, maybe a little housework. Anything but go outside.
I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday morning, friends.
