Long and Leggy
Darn those French women. I really should tape a picture of these two on my refrigerator or maybe even on the kitchen door. Despite the fact that the holidays are over, demands for baked goods keep rolling in and I keep obliging. These gals would probably be content just to take a whiff and move on. Regrettably I don't have the same willpower and frankly, I'm not even close to being from the same gene pool. As I passed by these two after taking their picture though, I had a good chuckle when I saw that both had lit up cigarettes. Figures.
We've been having some awfully nippy weather here and I've pulled out the layers, hat, gloves, and wooly scarves. What's interesting to me is that the modal Parisian, bundled up when the temps are in the 50s (Fahrenheit, that is), have not reacted to the cold by adding more layers. Maybe once those French furnaces are stoked, they keep on an efficient burn all winter long.
