So one day I was walking, just walking along, when I stumbled upon this vase, this beautiful vase. I was merely admiring its beauty in a world of my own, a world of my own, when I was knocked out cold, so cold! Next thing I know, I’m trapped in this frame, with only a feather duster for company, a feather duster I tell you! So I picked it up and had a go, a go. More to while away some time, there’s so much time. So yeah, it’s just me, the feather duster and the vase. (Did I mention the vase?) I don’t know how long I’ve been here, all I know is so long. And all I do is repeat myself, repeat whilst I dust. [Kim Shillam]
