The father looks very hot, because he’s wiping the back of his neck. He’s got problems, this bloke.
In his other hand he’s got a packet of chips. He’s eating them and they’re wrapped up in newspaper. He wants to have a funeral, if he’s doing that! He’s cranky because he’s too hot. He’s at a function—it could be a get-together after work. The wearing apparel indicates that it’s summer.
He’s giving the thumbs up. The man is wearing braces but because he’s holding the newspaper he can’t use his thumb to pull his braces up!
He’s cranky with his wife because it’s too hot. He’s got a “sweat rag” in his other hand. His wife thinks he’s getting old and cranky because of the heat.
Henry points out that there are pictures of women on the newspaper the man is holding. He is looking at the pictures more than he is looking at his chips. The man is wearing a tie with flowers on it. Vittoria tells us that his wife gave him the tie. The husband and wife are all together. They love each other and no-one is the boss.
The gentleman’s name is John. He could put his head under the tap to cool down, or he could fill his hat with water and put it on his head. John is looking forward to relaxing and going home.
