Wide end over small end to the left
           under the small end and to the right
across the front and to the left
           up into the neck loop from underneath
down through the loop you’ve just made to the front
           and tighten and slide up and adjust.
I’d be lost without you.

Bruce Robinson: “About those pu….Hey, I bore everyone. Not wanted in the kitchen, like Thomas’s aunts. And look, you need to be bored sometimes: it’s hard to keep swimming if you can’t deal with being bored. Ditto getting through the hard parts of: a book, a magazine, a poem. Who said, “il faut s’ennuyer d’abord”? I think it was Alain.”
