It’s late and I’ve been judging writing contest entries all evening. At this point, I’m not sure if I’m in the Scottish highlands, a hackney workhouse, or adrift at sea in a pirate ship. Judging from the blustery wind outside my window, I better bundle up, wherever I am. Fortunately, I have a quilt, a cat, and a pot of tea to keep me warm while I work.
I’m hoping the weather takes a turn for the warmer tomorrow, since I have a fancy-dress work event to attend in the evening. Navigating in high heels and a strapless gown is enough of a challenge without adding windy, wet weather to the mix. Just once I wish the theme of the yearly event would be slippers and jammies rather than black tie. I bet we’d all be more comfortable.
Since I’ll be wearing high-heeled sandals tomorrow, a pedicure is definitely in order; and what better way to fill the time while I’m waiting for my glittery polish to dry than with a little Random Word Improv?
