Dave, before we start, may I ask you a question?
– Sure. What is it? –
How do you look like?
– I don’t know. –
What do you mean, ‘I don’t know’?
– I’m invisible. –
Even to yourself?
– Yup. –
So how do you shave? Or dress?
(slighty uncomfortable) – I … eh … –
Oh. … You mean, like a putto?
– If you like. Only taller. And wingless. Can we change the subject, please? –
Of course. Sorry to embarrass you.
– Shaving’s tricky, though. –
I bet. (giggles) A shaving putto. – Er-hem. – OK, what have you got for me today?
– Well, I thought about some machine stitching. Some lines or random patterns. They should look fine on a piece of arty fabric like the hand-dyed cotton or the red and green print. –
I could use the graffiti pattern I found on a box in the street a while ago which I wanted to do forever.
– The blue lines and dots I turned your attention to? Great! –
– Yup. –
But then I found another piece from the decorator’s fabric pattern book which I think is the better choice. If I can ever manage to get the creases out.
