THE RIGHT COLOR

Lilou & John talk about re-painting art objects | Lilou talks about masculinity | John explains why he likes masculine men and feminine women

John: It was difficult to re-paint this wooden ball because of the structure, but I like the way it turned out. That green color is great. Do you remember where we bought the ball?

Lilou: Yes, it was at På Pall, my favorite shop in Borås.

John: That’s right, I thought it was that shop. I know you like to search for odd stuff in those kind of places, but why did you pick this ball, that didn’t even have the right color?

Lilou: I love the fact that it looked like a cannon ball, and color can always be changed.

John: What is it with you and cannon balls?

Lilou: The round shape it perfect. No edges. I associate cannon balls with weight and masculinity, both of which I value. War I can live without, though.

John: You often make references to masculinity. Do you think there is masculinity missing in your life *wink wink*?

Lilou: Not since I met you, honey, but I think it lacks in society. What do you think?

John: Well I think we live in a gender neutral society that lacks both masculinity and femininity. It’s as if women try to be masculine and men try to be feminine, which makes everyone a dull mix of nothing. You stick out, because you are so feminine and not afraid to show it, and the fact that you like masculinity instead of trying to fake masculinity, is refreshing in those days of gender neutrality.

Lilou: Well, thank you.
