Elf took some special pains to be presentable in this picture. He put on an extra swoop of deodorant and has done his hair himself. I am not allowed to touch his hair or even get close to him until the picture is taken, he tells me. Emperor will let me hug him, and he didn't bother to comb his hair (he has to be reminded, and I forgot). The picture, he says, is all about the shirt so the rest of that stuff doesn't matter.
