I was looking at my Bored.jpg, thinking back on when I created it, and the idea behind it. The idea was that sometimes a woman is bored, or worse. Every once in a while, even someone who holds as a possession a shrunken man goes through periods of boredom, ennui, restlessness, or even depression. Hopefully, that shrunken man doesn’t take it personally, and if he’s as bright as she imagined he’d be, he’ll do his best to entertain his keeper, and pull her out of that mental state, and into one more cheerful and conducive to fun.
I think… another idea might have lurked behind the image. I’m not quite sure since this was over ten years ago, but perhaps I also imagined that no matter how entertaining a shrunken man might have been at some point, there comes a time his keeper will look at him and realize there is nothing substantial behind his act. Not to her, anyway. His little parade has reached an end, and the novelty has worn off. There is nothing new he says, and his imagination has proven lackluster.
What is she thinking as she watches him try to juggle and drop one match and then another? I don’t quite recollect, but it might have been something about flushing him down the toilet.
