😀 Alas the naked guy gazing at his own reflection in a pool of water isn’t a photo of myself but I have a good guess you know his name, that’s if you know your Greek Mythology which I don’t! I happened across this Google image the other day and thought to myself ‘what a sexy looking guy’ even though I’m not gay, lol all very homoerotic and with a penis I’d be proud to call my own.
Anyways I’m Andrew and the guy is Narcissus.
Reluctantly 😀 I’m uploading a photo of myself and why not, I wrote reluctantly only because I’m not exactly Richard Gere 🙂 hmm I can sense your disappointment but there you are.
So why the distant expression you may ask? Where am I gazing with such distant concentration?
Now I guess there’s several ways to interpret this photo taken by my age 8 nephew from his iPad, (I might buy one of those, he saved up for his with his pocket money and yes the tablet IS as he says, “Awesome, Uncle you could play Pokémon Go on it!“, Err NO I’ll pass, I won’t be walking the Town’s Streets searching for Hotspots………… But a clever way of getting children outside exercising don’t you think? Nintendo I applaud you.
Where was I? Yes interpretation, well I’m not being narcissistic showing you how handsome I am that’s for sure, more likely I can sense my Followers err un Following. So you can be sure revealing myself is NOT vanity, no uploading this picture is nothing more complicated than showing a picture of me.
BTW my nephew secretly ‘captured’ this during Toy Story 3 and rather annoyingly he does this ALL the time! A lovely lad though and I’d be proud to call all 3 boys my sons but alas…….. anyways they’re a credit to their parents. (Being honest there are times when I wish I had children of my own but that’s for another blog post, ‘c’est la vie’ 🙂 )
Incidentally you’ll know the guy up top is the origin of the word narcissism and if you read WP blogs you’ll understand narcissism is an evil character trait much written about by bloggers from their own personal experience, horrific tales of nasty controlling men and yes also women.
Narcissus was a hunter in Greek Mythology who was known for his beauty, much like me! NO NO NO, Narcissus was the son of a river God born of a nymph and was proud, god was he proud and sneered at those who loved him. Nemesis noticed his behaviour and one day attracted Narcissus to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with himself, I have a guess we’re all picturing someone right now, and unable to leave the beauty of his reflection Narcissus lost his will to live and stared at his reflection until he died.
