Hi Ben, the title intrigued me and to be honest I wondered what you could be on about at first as there are a number of things that this could have been pointing towards for example a person up and leaving and leaving no signs of their departure; anyway I digress.
Now, the piece itself did make me chuckle a little as it reminded me a little of my uncle as he often tells me he has more hair in his backside (not that you or I need to know) than his head) as he's going bald. He just has hear around his ears. Although, I do joke that atleast come winter his ears will be kept warm. This is very clever.
