SWMBO had a booking late this afternoon to show jewelry at a special event. It was held in the building behind me as I stood on its steps for this picture. The 'Event' was an ethnic fashion show and there were scads of undernourished, young females looking all anxious as they wanted to make a good show of it.
After the 3rd or so young ethnically mixed male sauntered, sashayed or yes, swished past our tables as we were setting up, I realized I had arrived at gathering of TwinksRUs. Me being me, my first thoughts were of Yosey and what comments he might have
but then Mr. Shane crossed my mind and I re-examined these young men with a different perspective. I realized that while none of them would measure to his high standards in men, they would probably work in a sort of "In Case Of Emmergency, Break Glass" kind of way.
I marveled at the one officious event staffer who, Jawbone clamped tightly in his ear, managed to walk about with his right shoulder thrusting forward while his left was held back. His head was tilted at a permanently quizzical attitude and his hands were clenched behind him as he walked by. He wore a white dress shirt with a black v neck sweater just under the collar. Then he wore a necktie that was tied in such a fashion that the tip ended less the 4 inches from the knot.
Anyhow, we sold a bit of jewelry , waited for the second show crowd to arrive and then beat feet outta there before too much snow fell.
