About The Boy

It’s his job.¬†Taking out the garbage. He does it well. It’s his job. Taking out the garbage. He does it well. If not each night, then at least 3-4 times a week. He might ask me to open the main door for him – but that’s only because his hands are full of garbage bags that he’s collected from all…

Sensitive Parts. Unmentionables. Body-Shaming.

( Photo from the 77th edition of #CoverUp )   A concerned stranger ( Facebook Friend ) recently sent me a private message about the above photograph. I’m not sharing their entire message but, in essence, they said I should be careful of boys posting dirty comments because it looks like I have my hand placed at a sensitive place.…

You do not have to work for free

Adieu August #2014

I’m happy to see you go, August. There were many power-cuts where I live. Without power back-up, i.e. the Generator pictured above, I would have not been able to do half the things that I did. Work is dependent upon having the laptop or desktop or even just the smartphone up and about and neither of these devices would work…
