Her come-hither look. Sigh. I’ll just never achieve it.
Nope, not proud one bit. I blame my mom and my husband, because well, they don’t necessarily keep me from making a fool of myself and I think sometimes encourage it. I mean, why else would she suggest Jane Austen movies to watch and why would R agree to have a Netflix account? They both must be out to get me.
So I watched one of those movies my mom suggested on Netflix to which R agreed to subscribe. Not a good thing since it dealt with a modern girl going back to Jane’s time and becoming one of the characters in her book. Isn’t that what I’ve been trying to do my whole life?
Of course, I had to try and recreate it. One scene in particular involved learning how to use a fan to convey (or conceal) emotions. So I grabbed my trusty Pride & Prejudice book, fanned myself with it out the door and to the car.
Finally. I was alone and could practice my fan moves. I even pulled my hair back into a bun and walked sans make-up for probably the second time in my life. No seriously. My first words to my mom were “please cover up the dark circles under my eyes, mommy. thanks a bunch.”
All of this for Jane.
So, here goes nothing:
Cough, ahem. Uh, so yeah, come hither you tall thing, you.
How dare you come hither! Stand back!
Okay, okay, just kidding. Come back and hither a bit more.
What did you say? Don’t you hither away from me.
Hey you — You have a fast hithering pace, but I caught up. Don’t you like me?
Hee Hee… I knew you did. I hear other people hithering on the trail. Let’s get out of here!
I seriously could have done this all day. Point, shoot, click, hither. Point, shoot, click, hither. All day. But my spell was broken when I looked down. Sigh, again. I just can’t get in the regency era mood in these honkers. Next time on the trail I’ll bring my ballet flats. That will surely do the trick.
WOW …you apparently were sniffing that paperback way too long!! (how do you come up with this stuff …too funny!)Unc
Oh, Uncle J. If you only knew what goes through my head.
Oh sure, you're scaring me now!!
