Exaggerated Portrait # 8 : Larry

          Larry is an okay guy. He's happy, considerate to others, and always willing to help. So why is a nice guy like Larry so alone? Well, sadly the answer is simple; Larry is one ugly man.  With his crossed eyes and his big nose covered in blackheads most women don’t even look at Larry, except to point and stare. 

          Larry has weird hair growing all over him, an oddly large Adam’s apple, and worst of all every time he speaks his long tongue flops around causing spit to fly everywhere. 

          Despite his loneliness Larry always tries to keep his spirits up. He had his family to commiserate with and every now and then he would go to the park to feed the pigeons. 

          One day while feeding his friends in the park Larry noticed a woman crawling on her hands and knees. She had her arms outstretched, feeling around on the ground. While everyone else ignored her, Larry being kind at heart went quickly to see if she was okay. As it turned out the woman was looking for her very large, thick lens glasses. Larry bent over and began to help her look for them when she said “Thanks so much! I’m practically blind without my glasses.” It was then Larry thought better and stopped looking for the glasses but instead told her that finding them was probably a lost cause and that she should just go out to dinner with him instead.
