*REPOST from our babe @selmablair * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This is an image from @pinterest which I cannot yet (or still) figure out and I love it by the way. But, i scroll and scroll and I want information on that thing and then I get lost in a mole hole of other things unintended. I was searching banquettes (redecorating whimsy dreams) and it took me to a photo of a familiar figure in a cafe. This is not a joke nor am I being whimsical (so much whim in this post). She looked like someone I recognized. And then I saw the watch and thought how curious. I have that watch! I admired her fingers and hoped she was enjoying the book but couldn’t get past the head gear. I never looked at the face until I realized the book was also something I vaguely remember reading and loving. And how I must find this book [Losing Mum and Pup] by #christopherbuckley again. And then I put it all together and burst out laughing. This book came out in about #2007 I think. I guess #paparazzi were more subtle then. Never noticed. But then, I barely noticed it was me. I am definitely getting that book again. I passed it on cause it was so good. I wish the brain inside that massive beret could retain more information.”
