Hot And Hard British Writer

Mood: Literary

Ling has put big money on David Mitchell's Black Swan Green to be the new Booker Prize winner. It is a hilarious coming of age story about a thirteen-year-old boy, Jason Taylor, who suffers from stammer, which, according to the boy, is NOT to be confused with stuttering. Accurate labelling is very important when we were 13, isn't it? At one point, Jason ran into his art teacher, Mr. Dunwoody, reading Story of the Eye, the erotic novel written by Georges Bataille in 1928. Embarrassed, he told Jason it is a book about "the history of opticians". LOL

So Ling's question is: if a woman's vagina is being compared to an eye in Bataille's novel, a metaphor which eyewear designer Alain Mikli drew on in his advertising campaign a few years back, what would an optician stand for? Please don't say gynaecologist!

If the "eye" is a woman's vagina, maybe the optician is a dirty finger you use to get a hair lash out. He pokes around, marginally invited, only because it is necessary. You are never quite sure how many other places that finger has been before it poked you and since was washed last. But it has a funny scent, hurts a little if the eye isn't lubricated, and usually leaves you feeling itchy and unsatisfied.

As silly as it sounds, the only non-gyno analogy I could think up would simply be a penis. The penis is going to investigate the area and hopes that the eye dilates properly. Then it's going to test the eye's depth-perception. A lot of adjustments will be made until the eye feels what it's getting is just right. And from time to time, it's going to spray liquid into the eye.

A lingerie designer?

Hmmm. No. That would be more like a blindfold.
Somebody that's into bondage...?

Makes me think of my favorite excuse for calling out sick.

I tell them that I'm having some eye trouble and can't come in.

They ask what kind of eye trouble.

I tell them I can't see myself coming into work.

But really I just want to stay home and screw all day.
