Of the two nighties I am currently engaged to,
there was in my mind a debate about which one to take with me on the
long journey. It was a debate that saw me quite happily through
two shifts at the Fulfillment Center, and on my way home from work last
Sunday, I had decided on the Reindeer nightie, because my other nightie
can, if I am seen wearing it, sometimes discourage positive
opinions of me, and you never know when there can be a fire in one of
those Hotels that for some extraordinary reason boasts free breakfast
and a something they call coffee, but which probably is a confusion of
meaning, and when a person is outside of his own county it's best to be
Suffice to say that I forgot to pack either of my
nighties. Which I think explains much about the nature of our world.
Had I given no consideration whatsoever to how I might appear to others, I
firmly believe I would have had my own nightie to sleep in during the
several nights that I was away. Fortunately I was in contact
with The Artist and without so much as a second thought she offered me her
"Karma is as Karma does," tee shirt to sleep in. Which, shall we
say does not cover the knee, and which is blue in color, and which she
herself, I have noticed, does not wear when out and about amongst strangers.
Either way, the child was very, very small and very adorable.
