Odd Trio Redux – Time for another Odd Trio prompt: write a post about any topic you want, in whatever form or genre, but make sure it features a slice of cake, a pair of flip-flops, and someone old and wise.
Sorry I’m so late getting started on this. I had to stop and take a few pictures. It’s pretty dark in the house today because, as I discovered when I was heading out to the deck to shoot, it’s raining. I had to shoot in the kitchen. It slowed me down.
Today’s prompt calls for me to write about anything as long as I include a pair of flip-flops, piece of cake, and someone old and wise.
Old and wise? No problem.That would be me. The one with the camera wearing a 70% off final clearance orange tee-shirt dress from JJill. This has become my default house dress. If I want to be totally lazy, I can sleep in it too. On a rainy day like this — there have been few rainy days this summer — I can say I’m “dressing against the weather.” When we lived in Boston and worked, it was traditional to wear bright colors on drab days. This dress is bright and the day is definitely drab.
Now, about that pair of flip-flops. The problem is, it’s not a pair. Yesterday I realized it had become a single flip-flop. I looked under the sofas and the coffee table, but no luck.
I’m not much of a flip-flopper. They feel funny and slide around. I was keeping them in the living room so I’d have something to slip on if I wanted to go out on the deck without getting splinters.
I have to blame this on the dogs. Who else would want one of my flip-flops? As flip-flops go, these were nice ones. Leather. Clarks. One is useless, so I’m hoping whichever of our guilt-ridden canines stole it will bring it back before it’s ruined. Oh, never mind. It’s already ruined.
About that piece of cake. We don’t have any cake here, but Garry is addicted to miniature apple pastries. We always have some of them. In the name of honest authorship I felt obliged to eat a couple this morning with my coffee. They are very good with coffee, though it is rare that I put the coffee, pastries, and shoes in one picture.
But hey … when WordPress calls, I obey!
