A Short Review of Little Black Dress

If you like bold fragrances that tantalize your senses after you spray them on your pulse points, then you will like Avon’s Little Black Dress Eau de Parfum. It is a delicious mix of lemon oil, jasmine and woodsy scents that doesn’t have a sweet fragrance. Conquer your day with this fragrance!

The Sisters

You turn and look to the left of your girl and notice your boss entering the room. Your boss’s holiday smile turns into a frown, followed by a dark scowl which grows darker with each step.  Again you turn your head to the right. Your friend is still talking with the women, oblivious to not only the demise of his career, but also, to an upcoming near death experience. 

In an instant, stepping in front of your boss and blocking his stride,  you are at your friend’s side and steering him away from the onslaught. The women look up and with coy smiles also step in front of the boss and steer him in the opposite direction-away from the food, you hope.

Your friend says, “Man, I was about to get all of those fine, and I do mean fine women’s numbers.” You watch your friend do a shudder-shake which you usually find funny in another setting, but now, you find rather unpleasant to watch.

“Yea, they would all be the same number too,” you say. “They live here, as in, they are the daughters of the boss-man, kind-of-live-here, man.”

Your friend sputters,”They don’t look anything alike…awww man!”

“Did you not hear when we were in training that the boss and his wife adopted five babies from different countries because they could not have children. He also specifically said not to hit on his daughters when we were at the holiday office party. The last time I checked, I believe this is the holiday party. Did you not hear that?”

“I thought he was joking.”

“What!? What man jokes about his daughters?”

New Mates

I have a received a pair of new mates from Santa; a pair of thick black gloves. Now, both the white glove and the red glove will retire for the rest of the winter, but, not be discarded.

Why? Because this time, next year, one of the black glove-mates will have moved out and divorced the other. Neither I, nor the remaining glove-mate will ever be able to find it.

The Ornaments

You and your girl head in the direction of the food. However, both of you are stopped by the sight of a two-story Christmas tree with six different ornaments at seven each per ornament.

Pine cone...SOLD!

Just before you can stop her, your girl plucks the pine cone ornament from the tree and smiles that dazzling smile that caught your eye when you first saw her.

“This is so beautiful,” she whispers to you. “Look at the gold tips and the raised decorative print. It’s like velvet. We could buy a whole bunch of these and decorate the church pews – ”

“For what?”

“For our wedding,” she smiles and gazes into your soul.

Then she plucks another ornament from the tree. “This is soooo adorable. Look, they have their names at the bottom of this one in the same French script handwriting.” She pauses.

You know she is waiting for you to say something, anything, but, your mind stopped working after she said the word “wedding.”

“We can write the names of our children on our’s, as well,” she said.

The Mason - Army Green Dog Sweater Coat with Leather Buttons XXS

Army Green Dog Sweater Coat...SOLD!

As soon as you and your girl step through the door, three little white Chihuahuas run up to you with miniature snarls and barks around your feet. All three are adorably dressed in hand-knitted, army green sweaters with leather buttons and wide collars.  Your girl picks up one and makes goo goo and gah gah noises at the tiny dog which seems to calm him down. The other two are quite happy to continue barking and nipping at your shoelaces. You pick up a second one and notice the sweater provides full coverage to the back and front of the little dog. The wide collar makes the little dog look genteel.

The hostess returns with a plate of cookies. Cool! Food, you think. Your girl asks the hostess if the sweaters were made from wool. The hostess confirms that the sweaters were an acrylic wool blend, quite warm, and snug. You reach for the plate of cookies and start to eat one.

The hostess laughs, “No, these are for the dogs.”

Your girl laughs, the hostess laughs again, and you can feel your face getting warm. You make yourself smile, because after all, she is the wife of your boss.

Karma Cookies Pumpkin Natural Dog Treats

Karma Cookies...Pumpkin...Natural Dog Treats...$6.50

“Here, why don’t you give the dogs their treats,” she hands you the plate of cookies which are shaped like bones. “Crumble them up,” the hostess says, “you could probably eat them since they are made with spices, pumpkin, rice bran, oatmeal and eggs, no sugar or preservatives. I don’t see why you couldn’t eat them. Here, let me try one.” She breaks a little piece off and pops the piece into her mouth and chews. “Well, it’s not sweet, and it’s dry,” she pauses, “and it has a nice autumn spice flavor. They’re called Karma Cookies™. Isn’t that sweet?”

She continues, “The dogs love ’em. The cookies help their immune systems, which is great, because this little guy,” she pulls the dog from your girl, “has been sick for a while. We rescued all three of them from a puppy mill, a year ago, and, it has been a rough year for this little guy.” She kisses the dog on the nose. He nose-kisses back with one eye cocked on the cookie plate. “As soon as we started giving them these cookies, we noticed their coats improved much faster than the other two we rescued two years ago from another puppy mill.

You ask, “The other two?”

“Yea, they are the big guys, an Alaskan Husky and a Greyhound. They’re in the basement for the evening. I’ll have to tell you about their horror stories, but, another time. You two, go get some food.”

She called the dogs, “Cobbie, Corly, and Chester, come on babies, and off they scampered after her and the plate of cookies.
