What All The Fuss Is About
Ongoing readers may recall Mandy MacLeod from her many contributions to this site. Our photographer-correspondent has appeared on occasion in You may be a Leonard Cohen fan if …, the series of posts featuring aberrant behaviors signaling that one is at risk of being a full-fledged Leonard Cohen fan. For example, patient zero for the following indicator is Mandy:
You finagle two tickets to see Leonard Cohen perform at Sligo, book hotel and ferry reservations, and arrange kennels for your dogs; then – and only then – do you ask your husband if he would “fancy going to Ireland for summer holiday.”
When your husband, who is not a Cohen fan, yet is, inexplicably, an uncommonly fine fellow, responds (after assuring “I haven’t got to go to concert have I?”) in the affirmative, you find yourself displaying a soppy grin of self-satisfaction for the next five days because, after all, you love the guy – and your husband is OK, too. You are, of course, also happy because those two tickets you purchased are for one seat at each of the two concerts.
