What Do You See?
When you look at the photograph above, what do you see? Is it a funny face or something else? This was my wife’s dinner which consisted of a chicken bakey thing with broccoli and a couple of baked potatoes. She added the tomato sauce as two blobs on the potatoes and a streak of it at the bottom of the plate.
A Funny Face
When we both sat comfortably at the table and she’d finished her Picasso style fidgiting with the sauce bottle, she pushed the plate around to me and said, “Look, a funny face. Hahahahah.”
I was taken aback by this bit of unexpected food art, especially as I was starving and wanted my sausage roll and cabbage.
You See Whaaaat?
“Do you see it?” she asked. I looked, dumbfounded and a little bemused. The first thing that came to my mind was a woman’s body. I had to spurt out the words as they came into my mind. “A pair of t*ts and a fat belly” is what came out of my mouth.
“Whaaaat?” she replied, adding “you don’t see a funny face?”
Well, I did when it was pointed out to me, the two potatoes as eyes with red blobby eyes and the burger thingy as a big round nose. The smiley face made from a dribbly placed band of tomato sauce.
I Was Miserable
To be honest, I was being a miserable bugger. Hungry and tired, I wasn’t in the mood for ‘food art.’ So we sat quietly and the funny face was downed and much tea drunk or drank. After I had been fed and watered, we both could see the funny side. That’s when I thought I’d blog this little experience and ask everyone what they could see in the photo.
It’s a good job wifey didn’t take a photo of my pudding, banana and custard. Goodness knows what she would have made of that.
