Those brilliant Egyptian bastards...

Oh Gerard, this photo is so mine. I HOPE you don’t mind if I snag it.

As you know, butt for that unfortunate Indonesian headscarf that caused an itch, resulting in a very un-FLOTUS like scratch, Lady M eschews headgear. I’m not saying I can convince her to don an occasional noggin topper, butt photos like this do give me a place to start.

BTW, it dawned on me while previewing this that I should have changed the tense to past, since I’ve already snagged it.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
