My friend Warren Spector found this. Haunting, since I had a pug for a while. (Yes, this is only a Boston Terrier, not a pug, but still…) And when I worked with Warren, I had my hair colored and cut like this.
I should get my hair done like this again, buy a Boston Terrier, hang this painting in my office, and sit stroking the little dog when people come into the office for meetings.
If someone asked, “Weird…isn’t it strange to hang a picture of you on the wall behind you like that?”
I would respond, deadpan, “That’s not me. It’s my mother.”
“Would you like some wine?”
