Petula Clark Must Have Had a Drawer Full of Lovely White Brassieres When She Wrote the Song "Downtown"
We are supposed to be going to St. John's. Hours ago. It is 75% my fault that we are late but I have several awesome excuses.
We are standing beside the clothes dryer.
HER: WHY are you standing by the dryer?
Me: I am waiting for my Town Bra to dry.
HER: Wear one of your painty ones!!
Me: No, you know I don't want to get caught having to go to the hospital with painty bra armpits! What if we hit a moose or I choke on a pancake?
HER: You don't ever eat pancakes. Just wear your Town Bra damp!
Me: No, I'll get chillblades.
HER: What are chillblades?
Me: When your shoulder blades get chilled and you get a rash and ulcers and things.
HER: You mean chilblains?
Me: No, I mean chillblades.
HER: Cara, just get ready while you are waiting. Where are your Town Shoes?
Me: That would be a fabulous name for a shoe company. Town Shoes.
HER: It IS the name of a shoe company.
HER: PLEASE get ready. Put on your Town pants and get your bag....PLEASE!
The dryer horn rings to tell me that my Town Bra has finished baking.(Saved by the bell!)
Her: Put it on!Put it on!
Me: The metal clasps are still on fire, I'll burn my back!
(I notice that the little red veins on her temples have popped out - which isn't really a good look for Her.)
HER: I'll let you listen to Barry Manilow and Abba all the way to St. John's.
Me: And back?
And there it is.......................
I am now getting dressed.
Me: Is the Dairy Queen Brazier the same as a brassiere that you wear?
HER: (I can't write what She said next but it had a LOT of punctuation signage and exclamation marks)
I guess it's not the same.
