WHAT A DIFFERENCE A (DORIS) DAY MAKES ... !

                             

Susan -- formerly known as the "Lizard Lady" for her tendency to bring an Australian Bearded Dragon named Sophia with her to Starbucks -- arrived on the scene at 7th and Montana this morning, renewed and refreshed from her recent trip to Paris.  "You must be Martygord," she said.  "I've been looking forward to meeting you."  I must admit that it took me a brief moment to recognize Susan without a Reptile on her shoulder, but -- once I realized who she was -- I quickly invited her to join me.  Apparently, Susan had what she described as a "Doris Day" experience in Paris, fending off the unwanted advances of an Italian gentleman named Arturo who chased her around and around the hotel until the management finally had him removed.  Susan:  Next time, I suggest you consider bringing Sophia with you.  Nothing says "three's a crowd" quite like the presence of a Bearded Dragon on your shoulder ...!

You know what Dorothy Parker said about whiskers on women?  (paraphrase...) "Oh, those aren't whiskers, dear, they're just eyebrows that have gone astray."  Paris was wonderful...Sophia might have deterred Arturo...but in Paris, "no" means "maybe", and a smile can be an invitation.  Yes, relations are different between les femmes and l'hommes than they are here, but that makes things more interesting..."Vive le difference!"

It's been years since I've been chased round a Parisian hotel by an Italian. All I said was I want a cuppacino and a cream horn!
Gaz ;-)
