Yes, I am still wanting this coat.
I don't even have the buttons yet. It is something I savor in the back of my mind that I rocked the shoulder pads and sleeves. Look at the bump out on the shoulder! I love that I have come this far in sewing my first couture coat. Half machine and half hand sewn. You should see the lining. You probably never want me to talk about this coat. Too bad.
Honestly, look, I've never been more serious here.... What would you honestly do if you woke up tomorrow and at the foot of your bed or hammock or whatever you roll up in at night, and Dean Martin was singing Kentucky Babe to you with that extra Hamburger Helper yahda yahda yahda la da la la loo croony singing. What would you do?
This is what Salinger was listening to when he wrote Down at the Dinghy. Salinger's character, Boo Boo Tannenbaum was humming this as she was walking down the board walk to go convince some little boy not to run away in his little boat. That's about as far as I got. I think I put too much oil in my tub because I just slipped off this here chair.
