OK Ė I know itís a really crappy photo Ė no modelling, slightly strange colour balance, uninteresting compositionÖneed I go on?
The truth is though that itís a photo of the bed in our spare room. Itís got clean sheets on it and itís properly made up. Thatís something of a miracle. Last time the bed was slept in was last time my super buddy Colin came to stay in the middle of July. Since then, the duvet had disappeared to who-knows-where, the remainder of the bedding was still on the bed from his last visit and on top of that was a makeshift photography studio Ė lights, backdrop, detritus from four months of PAD and other assorted gunk. Now, itís a tidy and although barely, a functioning bedroom again for Colinís impending visit for this weekend.
I canít tell you how much pleasure it brings me to say that. I miss spending more time with him. I miss the chats about books, the shared love of food, his wonderful ability to attract dogs Ė see this Ė I even miss his size 12s! Heís coming down for a quick weekend and I canít wait to see him.
Iím not sure whether this will increase or decrease my new-found reputation as the office minx since I seem to be accidentally falling into every double entendre going at the moment. Todayís gem was that the spare bedroom was in use as a photography studio Ė now they all think Iím engaging in making porno pics, which couldnít be further from the truth of course. Any moment now, theyíre going to start to call me Benny Hill.
So, the photo is the antithesis of what they think is going on and itís a celebration of the fact that someone will be sleeping in a proper bedroom this weekend as the studio has been packed down.
What's that you say? Oh, yes, it's true that the photo does include a bed...oh and three naked torsos...oh and a bunny...oh OK then, perhaps it does meet the dictionary definition of porn!
