Ragtag Daily Prompt: Sleep

“Ouch!” Shouted GarGar, squirming in his chair and the royal barber stood over him with a pair of tweezers. With a frown, the man leaned closer into his work and plucked a hair from his eyebrow. Again GarGar shouted, “Ouch!”

“Stop being such a baby, my lord,” murmured the barber. “I’m almost done. You don’t want to look asymmetrical, do you?”

“I don’t care how I look at this point,” replied GarGar plaintively. “All I want is to go to sleep. I’m tired!”

Just then, Queen Pirouette entered the room. “How are you feeling my love?” She asked of le comte des Deux Chats.

“Whatever confession you want me to sign, I will do so willingly, if only you tell this man to stop torturing me!”

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
