Hands and Butterfly

During the Olympics I and the rest of the world got particularly enamoured with Michael Phelps and in particular butterfly. Butterfly is a particularly hard swimming stroke to master. It shares nothing in common with other strokes. I have never been particularly good at it but this did not stop me from commandeering all manner of pools and seaside locations for butterfly exhibition swims.

Racial stereotyping aside South East Asian's are not renowned for being good swimmers. This compounded with my sometimes alcohol infused enthusiasm made for quite a spectacle. Alas during one of my last shows my wedding ring slipped off in Chiang Mai never to be seen again.

Luckily the ring was not particularly expensive. We wisely spent our wedding savings on entertaining our guests and feeding them. So whilst there was an emotional attachment, the finnacial one was not great. Therefore it is with great pleasure that I can now present to you my new official wedding ring, worn by my hand model.



My hand model is actually myself. Another string in my bow. I could quite adequately be a part time hand model. Stunning they are, although they sadly have a bad habit of going on about themselves. Just like a good model should....
