Hmmmm I seem to be scowling at myself in the camera lens - this was the best of a very bad lot!
Swiney has been out and about gallivanting around the countryside this week on a mission to get noticed. I teamed him with a black jacket on each ocassion so that there was a huge colour contrast between what I was wearing, and Swiney himself.
Sadly, Swiney has been virtually totally ignored by each and every person that I've come into contact with.
Appointment with Respiratory Specialist (surely he would recognise Swiney).
No comment from the Receptionist upon entry.
No comment from Specialist during appointment.
Wasn't expecting much due to lack of sense of humour.
Picking up films from Radiology department at Hospital number one.
No comment from Radiology Receptionist who dealt with my query.
No comment from Radiology Receptionist who delivered my films to the waiting room.
Lots of stares from other people in the waiting room (not sure whether that was due to Swiney or whether they were just staring at me).
Dropped into a friends house for lunch.
No comment from the three adult friends who were there.
While eating lunch, the 2 Year Old points out the yellow fuzzy with red bits on my jacket.
Yah for Swiney - he's finally been noticed!
Appointment at Hospital number 2.
No comment from Receptionist who books me in.
Arrive at day ward.
No comment from the three nurses on duty.
After two hours, one of the nurses tells me "that I always look colourful" when I come in.
Not sure what that means.
Is Swiney colourful? Am I colourful? Do I dress like a freak when I come in? Is it a compliment? Is it an insult? Is she just making conversation? I am wearing an orange t-shirt and matching orange socks after all.
I say "thanks" and just keep reading my book.
The two year old wins the Swiney challenge!
