"Well, Strike Me Pink!"

she loved nestling
into the sofa
and watching
old movies from the 30s.

not only was
there something
magical about watching
Fred and Ginger
dance the Continental

but it made her giggle
to see Fred wear a
silk polka dot robe
over his tuxedo trousers,
pausing only to adjust his ascot
before dancing on the table.

plus, she decided that few things were better
than hearing a waiter say,
"whumsical is more whimsical than whamsical"
as he delivers the afternoon tea.
