Grecian

I have a rule to force me to be creative with what I wear: I can wear the same thing as many times as I want, but every time I put it on it has to be with different accessories. Last week though I had two different dinners, and my outfit got such a good response the first time around that I decided to repeat it a few night’s later.

I walked straight past this dress in the shop, and Adeline virtually forced me to try it on. Maxi dresses are not the best option for a vertically challenged individual such as myself, but the fabric was so light that it floated as I walked in the dressing room, and much to Adeline’s delight I was sold.

As I started getting changed for dinner I got a bit carried away with the whole Grecian vibe that the dress was giving me and next thing I knew I was headed to dinner looking like a modern day Hera.

When I wore this outfit for the second time, it was to a dinner with Molly. I am a huge dessert fan, and so when we had finished our pizza I suggested we drive to Coolangatta for ice-cream.

I do not muck around when it comes to ice-cream. In fact it concerns me that there are people out there in the world who think one scoop of ice-cream is an adequate serving.

I was walking along with my substantial bucket containing three (actually four as Molly had given me one of hers) scoops of ice-cream, thinking what a nice night I’d had and trying not to trip on the hem of my dress, when a woman, who I swear on everything I hold dear I have never seen in my life, came running up to me. She wanted to know if I had gotten married that day. At first I was seriously confused. The last date I went on was well over 18 months ago (it’s getting to the point where I’m seriously tossing up between buying the first of many cats or a ferret and I don’t like either of those animals), and the concept of marriage is currently as foreign to me as people who only get one scoop of ice-cream.

Furthermore, this woman seemed seriously annoyed. I told her that I was just out to dinner with a friend, and she told me with great relief that because of my long white dress, she thought I was a bride who was having to drive herself home on her wedding night. She even offered to track down my imaginary groom and put him in his place.

I appreciated the sentiment, but in all honesty, if my wedding night does end with me holding a tub with four scoops of ice-cream, I don’t think I’ll be complaining!

    And yes, I think servings should come in number of pints! 😛
