Am I alone in feeling happy that I'm unlikely to bump into feral youths? I must be losing my mind; I distinctly remember being chastised for pointing, but now it seems that it's perfectly fine. Maybe I'll just go hold some doors open for some young women... no, I also distinctly remember reading somewhere that that's not the thing to do anymore and that it's verging on the insulting.

No wonder some stay at home. But even then we get it wrong: you should get out more, we are told.

Oh well, I'll go make some coffee.

In New York it's a funny thing, women under forty seem to like the idea of door holding again.

Yes, I like that it obviously tells a story but you don't really know what the story is.

I do like this, the one flaw I find is that I feel that the mystery might all be revealed if the frame was not clipped at the bottom. The mystery is not ineffable or unknowable, it's simply been cropped out. That feels like a bit of a cheat.

Sorry to disappoint but the mystery has not been cropped out - wherever it is, it's not in the bottom left corner. Actually, it's a mystery to me too because I didn't have time to investigate as I was on the run myself.

I think there's a little dog with his leg raised behind the man. The boys are telling the pooch where to aim his nozzle.
