Mary was wearing her piink and red glasses while reading a blog on Simone Weil,the French mystic.Mary knew her brother Andre was a mathematician.Is that a form of mysticism? And is mysticism of any value? There’s more value in helping a neighbour than in mystic bliss.
Annie ran in carrying a green bucket and blue spade in a plastic bag
I’m going to Cleethorpes for a day trip . she cried cheerfully
I don’t think so,Mary said while mentally assessing Annie’s outfit of imitation leopardskin leggings covered in part by a guava coloured tunic which matched her trainers very well.The whole topped by a down coat in pink and purple stripes which she got in a sale online in the summer
Do you think leopardskin is suitable for a beach?You might want a donkey ride
The donkey won’t know the pattern,Annie said.sincerely yet uncaringly.Indeed some may say she was rude to the point of a dagger
Her full lips pouted ,showing off her coral lipstick and matching eyeshadow from Gillete of Rochdale and Hebden Bridge not far from Sylvia Plath’s grave.Oh,my>
Her foundation cream was not unlike that of Donald Trump which Mary had not mentioned, unwilling to shatter Annie’s dreams of wondrous love in waiting.
Although in would have made more sense to tell her to dress with more dignity and charm if she wanted a man
.With modern fashion it’s hard to know what will attract people.Who’d have thought leggings and bikini tops would be worn to go shopping?
Pyjamas seem popular too.
Why don’t we go to Hebden Bridge?
With all these storms its been under water for weeks
Oh,blagger, there’s always some problem
Well, we are getting older and I don’t want to die in Hebden Bridge by drowning
So where would you like?
Dundee.They make nice cake
You won’t need cake where you will be going
Actually I am going to the Diabetic Clinic
You never said you were diabetic
Annd you never said you had 33 teeth.
Well,I am a Viking
That’s no excuse
I can’t alter my genes
What are they,little patterns?
To be honest ,I don’t really know
Let’s go to Waterstone’s and buy Hilary Mantel’s new book.
It is very heavy
But if we are put in quarantine we will be able to read it
I’ll plant some tomato seeds in a carton of compost
Whynot? I might grow some herbs
And so will all of us
