I’m sitting here last night kind of failing to work on my afghan (turns out it’s hard to work on an afghan when you’re playing Civilization) and I get a text from the Butcher. He has found someone to get me some headshots. Sunday at 4. At no cost to me, because he “has taken care of it.”
I am looking at all the other headshots involved in this thing I need a headshot for and, at this point, I’m just hoping for something that makes me look friendly and approachable. I’ve studied the genre and the trope seems to be–stand by a wall, cover your double chin, get shot from above. If you have long hair, let it hang loose and flowing. If you have a beard, rock it. I don’t think I can grow a whole beard before tomorrow. But maybe one chin hair?
I wonder if it would be funny to try to get a headshot that embodied all the rules at once?
