Here, in the spotlight, is Nursey!
Nursey is a magnetic paper cut-out 'doll' that I found stuck to the inside of a classroom door a couple of years ago. Some of the students I teach are nursing students who take their education very seriously; they can also be a funny bunch with their sometimes bawdy[body] humour!
I was in a hurry to get to a meeting, so tucked Nursey into a file folder, then forgot about her until some weeks later when she fell out of the folder. I brought her home, and decided to amuse myself by sticking her somewhere and waiting for Jean-Michel to "discover" the nurse, posing seductively with a triple burger.
I didn't hear anything from him for days, until one day Nursey showed up as a print in my lunch box. He photographed her in situ and ever since we have been playing the game: I find a location/pose for Nursey; Jean-Michel hunts for her, then photographs her.
Once, neither of us could find her for some time; my eldest son found her a [temporary] home, then teased us with cryptic messages containing clues about her whereabouts.
Oh, the places she has been!
