This week, I’m all about HORNS AND HALOES by Charlie Cochraine.
Here’s what Charlie has to say about HORNS AND HALOES:
HORNS AND HALOES was inspired a training course I delivered. (I do some freelance training for school governors.) Now, that makes it sound as though my courses are full of fit young gay men flirting with each other, which is - alas - far from the case. One of the courses I run is Selection and Interviewing and it's funny how feelings can run pretty high when you get people with different views and aspirations in a room, dealing with important matters. I remember driving home one day and thinking, “What would happen if those feelings got channelled into romance?” The story just grew from there.
Like both the lads, I think that Valentine’s Day can be a bit overhyped. It puts a lot of unnecessary stress on youngsters, especially when they never get any cards. Been there, done that, in my formative years. I also sympathise with their frustrations at dinosaurian school governors!
What do you do when finding a new boyfriend is like conducting a job interview?
It's Jamie's idea of torture---a training course about selection and interviewing and on February the fourteenth! Everybody's going to be full of romance and he'll be playing gooseberry as usual. When Jamie finds himself sitting next to the gorgeous Alex, who seems to hate the day as much as Jamie does, will he turn out to be the ideal candidate for the vacant position of boyfriend?
