The video was the live version of the word beige. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good. It wasn’t anything. It was beige.
And the entire bridge was beige. The bridge was a metaphor of mediocrity upon which the boys walked into the ether.
That description was deeper than that entire video.
My little brother was painting at the kitchen table when I came home from work, so I got out my laptop and showed him a bunch of pictures of Larry Stylinson and asked him if he would paint them for me. I let him look through Google images and pick out the picture he liked best. When he handed me his completed painting, I immediately asked what the red blob was between the two of them (his last painting had been of “Appleman” so I figured the fruit-based superhero was making a reappearance).
He was already onto the next painting by then and didn’t even look up when he responded with, “It’s a heart because they love each other.” The funny thing is I hadn’t told him anything about their relationship, just asked him if he’d paint their picture for me.
“Do you think two boys can love each other?” I asked, expecting him to respond with something along the lines of “Eww gross! No!”
But he just nodded and pointed back to the picture on my laptop he’d been painting from.
“Yeah,” he said, “‘Cause they do.”
