>At creative writing last night we each picked a random object (without looking) from a box our tutor bought with him. Then we had about ten minutes to write something about the object’s owner, which included the object. This is mine. I might do something more with it, I’m sort of toying with the idea.
He is a bit of a mystery – and that’s the way he likes it. He’s a bit different – a bit unusual. That’s what people think about him or at least those that get close enough. To everyone else he’s just a regular guy. Friendly, helpful, unremarkable really. He likes that view of him too but not as much as he likes being a mystery. But then there aren’t many people who get close enough to notice the silver cufflinks shaped like question marks. And fewer still who realise just what they mean.
