Jaded is in the snappers’ room praying that PictureBoss doesn’t interrupt his sullen mood
PictureBoss: Ah, Jaded, jaded. The very man!
JadedSnapper: Oh fuck, you’re being nice
PictureBoss: Nice? I’m a benevolent chap, ruling the humble EveningSnooze’s picture desk like… like –
JS: You’ve ran out of words haven’t you?
PictureBoss: Err yeah,
JS: So what you got?
PictureBoss: Well you may have noticed that we have a bit of weather today Jaded…
JS: Fuck me, weather? In the sky?
PictureBoss: Yeah, actual weather…
JS: Well it’s lucky I have a red umbrella in the car for someone to conveniently walk by holding..
PictureBoss: No no, haven’t you looked outside? It’s not even raining
JS: Well there aren’t any windows in here,
PictureBoss: Yes! It’s a dark room! Geddit!
JS: That joke was appalling
PictureBoss: That’s why you put it in my mouth
JS: Oh yeah.. Right well I best find some small child to pose with an ice-cream
PictureBoss: No, no, that was last week’s weather picture!
JS: Oh, yeah, I’ve only done that picture once, ever, in my career. So, it’s not rainy, and it’s not sunny. But you still want a weather picture
PictureBoss: Yeah it’s special orders from EditorBoss
JS: Well I best pull out all the stops for this one then..
PictureBoss: Yes you best. It’s got to sum up the entire summer we’ve had
JS: We haven’t had a summer. It’s just been a bit, meh
PictureBoss: Yep that’s right
JS: So I’ve got to photograph the essence of ‘meh’
PictureBoss: See I knew you’d be the man for the job!
