I’m feeling all craggy and far-eyed today. You know, the kind of feeling that makes you think perhaps it’d be a good idea to shave, throw away all those shrunken t-shirts and dig out the good old Vyella ones instead. Oh, and wear strange trousers with pockets in places that are beyond dignified reach unless you’re a long-armed multi-tentacled being from the planet Tatami.
The far-eyed bit? Just an urge to sit in the sun and gaze into the distance to a point just beyond human ken. And suck a straw, like as not. Sucking a straw is good when you’re no longer allowed to smoke a pipe.
Just as well I got my sitting in the sun done yesterday, for today it’s all dark clouds and sneaky chill winds. I could do the shirt and strange trousers act, though.
