Funny how a random comment or reference can trigger a memory. That happened to me this morning. I was reminded of the Halloween in my Jr year of high school when I decided to be "a hooker" and enlisted the VERY willing help of a female friend, Alice. It was mostly her wardrobe, and I have vague memories of exactly what I was wearing. I went to her house the week prior to select the "costume". She had laid out 4 or 5 dresses for me to try. The first one was perfect, but that didn't stop me from wanting to try on all the others. Her mother, who was assisting, commented that I was enjoying my little fashion show. Alice supplied the shoes as well - good thing we were the same size - and I told her I'd take care of the undergarments.

OK - have to share this story because I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I was on my lunch break the other day (I work in drab) and popped into Mod Pizza.

On my way out with my salad, I passed her as they waited for their pizzas. I stepped up again and told her I liked he
Well, MOSTLY pictoral. Since it fell on a Thursday this year, I was flying solo. Which makes me want to call it National GIRL'S Night Out. But that didn't stop me from squeezing into some shapewear, getting into my best outfit - complete with silky sheer pantyhose (since it is ALSO National Legwear Day) and finally settled on my leopard print pumps. (for a splash of color, of course) I then went to the 3 best hotels in downtown Spokane - The Davenport Group. I felt beautiful, got some attention, enjoyed a nice (and rather expensive) salad and glass of Chardonnay, and didn't want the night to end.
