No more importantly you have a different expression, on just about all the photos I've ever seen of Buttonman you have the same expression. I've avoided commenting in case some horrible nerve condition had fixed your face cheeky, almost sardonic grin and now at last by fears have been put aside...
I have been accused of having a 'photo face' that I put on. We all do it. I mean look in the mirror and get an acceptable face - you then take that muscle memory and use it for each photo so that you don't come out looking like a mental. We do all do that, don't we?
The potato and mash dish looks divine. Anything a bit cheesy on it?
No, but it was creamy. I do like a bit of spring onion in my mash too. They used to have a place called 'Monster Mash' in Glasgow which specialised in mash but it has since shut - no way could it compete with the Glasgow salad (bag of chips).
What did you Mum tell you about playing with that under the table at mealtimes?
What she did tell me was to avoid talking to strange men so I'm outta here.
Not all grub stops are of the gourmet variety but still merit a photo or twelve. This is still Madrid but we got the cable car to this country park / Fairground (closed) and had a nice bit of grub awaiting the next car home. This jolly chap is enjoying a full portion of the tapas favourite 'Patatas Bravas'. These are small cubes of fried potato covered in a tangy tomato sauce and mayonnaise.
This version was a bit 'fast food' but still a tasty treat. Our hero also enjoys a large Mahon beer which came with a free hat, that he has perched on his large head.
