Sometimes I’m out in public, at a ball game or a restaurant or the beach. I’ll see a young man in his mid-teens, and I’ll say to myself, “I’d like to see him again, in a few years, when he’s matured.” And to honor such young men, I offer two photos I know you’ll like.
The first is clearly a professional photo, and I like everything about it: the sepia color, the boy’s shaggy hair and dark eyes, and the expression on his face. Check out those lips, too. Aye-yi-yi …
I wonder what his name is, and where he lives. I’m guessing he’s northern European, probably German, Belgian, or Dutch. Anyway, I think the photographer did a great job of capturing the young man’s beauty. Do you agree? Of course you do.
This afternoon turned out to be a busy one for me.
I had to drive all over town. First I purchased tile for the new shower stall in my rental apartment. Then I bought paint for the bathroom walls. I visited a window repair shop to buy parts to fix two windows (Real fun ….) and then I stopped by the florist’s for fresh cut carnations to put in my crystal vase I bought in Prague, back in the late 1980s. Whew. I’m glad to be home, with the car unloaded, and a fresh beer in front of me.
Do you like the second photo I’ve posted? The young man’s handsome, of course, but he seems oblivious to his own beauty. Boys that age often are, you know. The photo’s obviously a candid shot, probably taken on a pedestrian mall in Europe, or maybe the United States. Is that a Foot Locker shopping bag to the right of him? I see signs written in English in the background. Ahh, really. Who cares …?
My boyfriend’s working tonight, so I’m on my own. I’ll make a simple dinner and do a little writing afterward. Or maybe I’ll watch a movie on cable if there’s something decent on. Spending an evening alone is never a problem for me.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re having a nice Thursday night. Go out and take a walk on the streets, and maybe you’ll spy a few cute guys, too. They’re everywhere, you know ….
