I went to a party last night, and while I haven’t developed gills or fins, I don’t feel quite myself.

my peabody and the mermaidIt might have something to do with a lack of sleep, or it could be that I went wandering under a giant wisteria vine in ninety degree heat this morning… Yes, I bought tickets and went with friends. It’s amazing what passes for entertainment when you’re middle-aged.

I think I’ll go for a swim.

      Nothing a brisk swim in an unheated pool couldn’t take care of 😉 .

    Mr Peabody and the Mermaid! I love the gif! Is there anything more *American* than purchasing tickets to see the Biggest Something or Other?! I suppose we should be glad no-one’s tried that with the Grand Canyon, yet! (And if they have – don’t tell me! I’d rather believe otherwise! 😉 )
    Are we to take it from this that you drank like a *FISH* at the party?! Bwahahaha! (Geddit?! What a deadly pun!) I wouldn’t have believed it of you, Ms Lester!
    I am reading a book about the writing of The Great Gatsby and how it was intimately related to the circumstances of the early 1920s.; *they knew how to Party*! Scandalous! I don’t suppose Your party ended as some of those described in the sensationalist scandal-mongering newspapers did? A great debauch climaxing in an argument in which someone was be stabbed or shot… Altho’ I could see You being as outrageous as Zelda!
    PS Enough with the “middle-aged” nonsense, you ageist you. 🙂 (I won’t comment on the fact that a “group” of you went to see a big vine, tho’… Heh heh heh.)

      So far, no tickets required for viewing the Grand Canyon.
      No fishy drinking!
      Poor Zelda!
      Never been outrageous as that Southern gal, the original flapper? Jazz baby? Gin baby?

      I agree most strongly with Mr K – “middle-aged”??? Phooey. Enough of that crapola and pronto!
      PS. How much do I love that he wrote: “geddit”? A LOT.

        If I were being factual I’d say a wee bit beyond middle aged, unless I live to be a hundred 😉 .

    it’s so Hot over Here.

    we can ONLY imagine what it’s like There.

    stay inside.

    blinds closed.

    something retro starring Emma Thompson on the DVD player.

    it’s best.

      Were you awake this morning for that short sharp shake? I woke with a start, dreaming of a little sail boat…

        I have a friend who always called hot temperatures “earthquake weather”, perhaps she was right!
