That I had looked forward all week to another challenge with his guitar, he had promised
But when he walked through the door
Without his musical instrument
I was ready to shove him back out the door to go home to fetch it
But I calmed down enough to say to myself
Cool it, live with it..
He redeemed himself by giving us quite a good pose to work from
But soon he looked like he was dozing off
"You wouldn't be dozing off if you were playing your musical instrument!"
Looking around, I saw that nobody was watching
So I made a loud tap on my metal easel with the end of my brush
His eyes popped open only to be weighed down again
Cool it, just live with it...
So, here I've painted him with his eyes shut
I thanked him sweetly through my teeth for doing such a great pose
But to promise to bring his guitar the next time, please!
And as I bade him Good bye
My last parting words to him were
Don't you dare cut your hair either...
Now I, who had so looked forward to his guitar playing while I paint him playing
Have to look for someone else to serenade me with a song........
