Finally got a couple decent shots of The Hunch*. It took three days, about four glasses of chardonnay (the cheap stuff), three mini tacos, some old Chicago songs, a cup of coffee with an old friend and a trip to a gun shop.
Don't ask me about the gun shop.
Pattern up tomorrow.
*When I was labeling photos for the pattern I titled them "hunchback1," "hunchfront2," and "hunchbackmain." And while I was doing this, I was reminded of a great joke and I'm allowed to tell this one because I'm blind in one eye and may as well have a wooden eye, so. . . There was a guy with a wooden eye. He felt bad about it and even though he was afraid to attend the upcoming high school dance, his mom said to him: "Son, I know you have a wooden eye, but you should go to the dance anyway. I mean, there's bound to be a girl who'd love to dance with you." So, in spite of his eye made of wood, he went to the dance. He even got a new suit.
Anyway, at the dance he stood there along the folded up tables in the cafeteria/gym and it seemed like everyone but him was dancing. He thought to himself: "Jeez. I have a wooden eye. Who'd want to dance with me?" And then, all of a sudden he spotted a girl across the room, tapping her foot to the music, but looking like she'd like to dance and no one had asked her yet. So, he walked across the cafeteria/gym, and noticed, as he got closer, that this girl had a hunchback. A very unfortunate hunchback. So, he stopped for a second, and then thought to himself: "So what if she has a hunchback! I have a wooden eye! Plus, mom says someone would like to dance with me in spite of my, uhm, you-know." So, he finally walked over and stood in front of her and he asked, "Would you like to dance with me?" And she looked up at him and exclaimed: "Oh, would I!"
Startled, he yelled back, "Hunchback! hunchback!" and ran away.
