As promised, another piece of Invidia’s new artwork. She called this simply “Window Cane” but I think I’d call it “The Welted Wife”:
This one comes with an excellent story of spousal discipline from The Boss. You know the story is going to go well when the setup includes a conversation like this:
David drifted over to the bar, “Hey, Brad. ‘Sup?”
“A bit of this, a bit of that. How’s married life treating you?”
“One month in and it’s working so far. No complaints.” David smiled and took one of the margaritas that were already made up.
Brad glanced over at Sharon who was chatting with some of her friends near the fireplace. “If you don’t my saying, she’s been so different since you and she got together.”
“Different good or different bad?”
“Oh, definitely good. Before then she was, well…” he stopping before completing the sentence.
“A raving bitch?” David laughed, “Oh, don’t be shy. I got into this with my eyes open.”
Brad cleared his throat, “At any rate, you’ve been good for her.” He had been one of the guys that had been sunk by Hurricane Sharon but wasn’t bitter. He had found Merrill on the rebound and was much happier for it.
“Once she gets past herself, she’s a very affectionate person. I just have to keep a firm grip on that other side.”
That’s just a teaser, the full story (and a much larger-format version of the artwork) can be found here on their own permanent page.
Thanks much to Invidia and The Boss! I’m just so tickled to have some of their contributions again.
