Oh, the life I could be leading, draped in a gorgeous embroidered pashina. Dashing off to a fancy restaurant for dinner with sophisticate friends. Out for a night at the theater during the holidays. Dashing off to spend a few days shopping on the Miracle Mile in dowtown Chicago.
Well, yes, I suppose the reality is that I am at home, making dinner, helping teens navigate a successful route through torturous homework assignments, the dog needs to go out and I have laundry to do. But the life that I imagine, of me, wrapped in a gorgeous pashmina, oh, how does it appeal!
