...(with poetic license), always get me down.
So WHY don't grey skies and rainy days get me down when I'm in Paris (I have yet to be there when it hasn't been rainy). A transparently rhetorical question posed with the soul purpose of gratuitously showing some "not so new" photos to compensate for the fact it is raining AGAIN and I completely lack motivation to do ANYTHING today. Whew, gotta love a good run-on sentence. Oui... Calgon take me away (but can we stop in Italy on the way?)...merci', grazie, thanks a bunch.
I consider strolling hand-in-hand along a Parisian rain-soaked alley pretty darn romantic. In Philly? I'd just worry about feeling like a drowned rat and what the humidity is doing to my hair.
Exploring side streets and alleys for a bistro to dodge into to escape the drizzle over an espresso and croissant. Or at least TRY to order an espresso and croissant in French without getting laughed at. In Philly? Seriously? Have you HEARD what we sound like? "Youse want a cawfee wit da donut honey?"
What is it that W.C. Fields has etched on his tombstone? Something akin to "All things considered, I'd rather be in Philadelphia"????
Obviously he wasn't looking out MY window this morning! Geez Louise...better add Windex to my shopping list.
Off to my quaint neighborhood Wawa to escape the grey over a cup of coffee and Tastykake. Hoping sunshine and motivation are out there SOMEWHERE!
