Thin-necked Youth

March 26, 2010

Something about this guy reminded me of the ‘pimply teenager’ character from the Simpsons – the one with the semi-broken voice, usually works in the burger bar / ice-cream store / fairground. Anywhere Homer hands over cash for a disappointing experience. Can’t say that happened on the train. Kept my eyes peeled but no sign of a fat, yellow man in blue pants. Bummer.

Most people don’t notice, much less care about whether someone is drawing them or not. This young man wasn’t the happiest. At least, I don’t think he was happy. Hard to tell because I couldn’t see his eyes. Oh to be seventeen and angry with the world again. Not.
