I hope you don’t find today’s episode boring. I warned the Scribe that you might. She doesn’t listen very well. [Kind of like someone else we know?]
Today, we’re heading back in our guided tour, back from The Foyer and into the first room off The Gallery (I’ll show you that later), back into what I say is
The Christmas Room.
I think they should call it the Winter Room. I know I would find that more interesting. Bring some snow in and make it genuinely wintry. Now that has potential! Instead, B&E (that’s Bonnie and Elizabeth, not break and enter!) have done this as a compromise:
After taking this picture, the Scribe got a little fed up with my attitude. I guess I can’t blame her. She works hard to make things look nice, and her goal is not to achieve real winter. She says I can go outside and experience that. I can have all I want of it when we get home. “Show some spirit, Stella!” she said.
“We aren’t even open yet.”
Then she got an idea. I hate it when Elizabeth gets ideas.
“Why don’t you take a photo?” Not a good idea at all. Look what happens:
I went back outside – not Outside into Winter. Just outside the Christmas Room. It’s too small for both of us.
Look, another lesser Black Cawing Flapper! He’s not real, either. Neither is the Snowman.
One last corner and we’re done:
Oh! And there’s the Christmas Wreath hiding in the corner. Elizabeth says she’d better get that bagged and stored ’til next Christmas.
That’s today’s tour. Just one great big tease, if you ask me (today’s supposed to be my day off to play in the snow).
