Their clothes were all set out. Cufflinks, shoes and pearls. Momma and Daddy-O were off to a ball. It reminded me of when I was little. I'd watch them get all dressed up and dapper then Wilbur and I were left to play with the babysitter we adored. This didn't happen very often, but I remember all of the dresses Momma wore. The fuschia tulip style cocktail number, the long swan like gown and the silver Asian dress that fit like a glove. They're all hanging in the closet in fact, waiting to be twirled around one more time.
Friends Fiona & Jim came by for a little sip of champers before they all headed out. And even brother Will was all gussied up for his committee job. I was a little sad to be staying at home, but my feet were not. The terriers, Coop and I all settled into the living room while I read my book and ate pizza. Not a bad alternative indeed.
