"..... a boulder" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: ..... a boulder (Contract pics)

Leading Man
Two young Dubliners burrowing up Meelbeg en route to Rostrevor from an overnight pitch by the Annalong. He, delighted with the whole thing and she ditto, but a pace behind. “a pace behind ….”? I sense indignation coiling up tight as a cobra in a coffee cup. Simple fact is, other than you girls who are into this lark seriously, there are as many who tag along just to be beside “Handsome”. But what a price! A face so red and blotchy you couldn’t love it if you reared it, rat’s tail hair and breath the taste of railings. Poor goose, but enter stage left, Mr Gander. The Back Castles on Binnian: she small and narrow like a fairy; he large and wide like a ferry. Well-heeled North County Down. He trailing, gasping and torpid with boredom, fiddling with bits, like a child. I want to spare him, by shouting “Come along now Jonny for Heaven’s sake. Hilary hasn’t got all day you know!.” Anyway, Jonny sets into ascending a boulder, perhaps the better to view the pointlessness of it all. But alas, poor put-upon passenger, he has put upon far too much, since he walked Hilary home from the Hop - and he is soon to descend by way of a sliding half split and a tucked plummet, bang on to the centre of his gravity. This girth has been propping up a grand’s worth of Digital SLR, which is now reduced to springs and sprockets. Barely missing a stride, Hilary simply glances back and rolls her eyes…..”tch”. What is this about? If she said “Go home now Dear”, he would kiss her feet and buy her the world. So blokes, why not try that out on herself: “Go home now Dear” and report back.
