Random Observations #8

"Is it not a little...short?" I asked coyly of the svelte shop assistant/model-type loitering outside the changing room, as I yanked the gym vest down a little more to cover my midriff.

"Not in Brazil" she replied, in a matter-of-fact way.

Coco Chanel was misquoted when her official biography was translated into Portuguese. The quote which should have been published is:

"Before leaving the house, take a look in the mirror and remove one item of clothing."

Glad to see that you have not abandoned your fashion sense.

So....did she make the sale? Or did you decide to go for something more modest? :)

Ah yes. Sometimes I think I have lost the others, though... ;)

Sonya, she failed. The "hard sell" was a deal-killer for me.
