just like us

November 30, 2018

As a kid, whenever I was nervous about taking a test, or competing in a match, let’s say, my Dad used to tell me to imagine the invigilator or competition on the loo. “Just imagine them taking a crap, and that’ll ease your nerves.” There’s something equalizing in the idea that we all shit and fart and burp, and that even Kings and Queens and exam proctors blow their noses and study their snot. Which is why, and I’ve said this here before, I love to happen upon images of great and important people doing mundane things. Like Queen Elizabeth, drinking a glass of wine.
