In which One paints with words…

portrait

Nothing even remotely amusing has occurred this week, Dear Reader…

Therefore, kindly allow One to paint a portrait of the A of the F in words…

Yester-evening, fuelled by the general euphoria of finishing work for the day/having a scoff and a scotch/football on telly, the A sent One a cheerful message…

Back and forth they went.  (messages various)

One, reclining on the truckle bed with a ‘manuka honey peel-off face mask’ graamed on, wearing me special thermal socks and with a hot water bottle stuffed down the arse of me leggings, made like a skittish sex kitten, secure in the knowledge that One wasn’t visible.

‘Come over now if you want,’ came one missive.

‘Twas growing dark, One required extensive grooming in all departments and so elected to remain a vision of loveliness in his mind’s eye…

Just as he is in mine…

And here he is…

Resplendent in the moss-green, elderly person’s reclining armchair and, no doubt, sporting the cargo shorts, t-shirt and body warmer, he sits with scotch in one hand, fag in the other shouting at the football on his i-pad.

And with bare feet.  Mmmmmm

A veritable force-field of items various will be displayed, barrier-like, about the perimeter of the A of the F docking station…

1     Cheesy biscuits

2     photography magazines

3     fag packets

4      books he keeps meaning to read

5      TV guide

6      newly acquired tripod (that gets more attention than One!)

Occasionally the guitar shall be deployed and an obscure 1960’s dirge will drift out the open window to bemuse the nearby field of sheep.

Grimacing and shouting (see above) at regular intervals at any perceived irregular decision made by some poor referee type is de rigeur.

Any road up…

A vision of loveliness indeed, with just one item missing – One (minus face-mask, hot water bott and socks of course)

A wonderful portrait. I feel as if I could step into his living room. (Although I must say the iPad threw me. I expected he still had a tube tv with a white plastic box, some extra green in the tint, and a well- used pair of rabbit ears (antennae).
