Tuesday Story 12

A first for me to try for Paula’s photo prompt:

It was all right for some, those who would hang on the arm of a client or sit by their side and seem forever glamorous. For people like me, it took time and effort to get inside the casino, let alone close to the table, where all we could do was watch and feel the tension mount.
How I wanted to be her. Cocktails by the dozen, demurely sipped, looking over her sugared glass with caramel eyes fringed with perfect, if false, eyelashes and secret smiles.
At best, I could expect a nice cup of lemon tea, served in a china cup of course, I have some standards you know.
Still, I bet none of them were able to kick off their shoes in the early hours and then sleep until nearly midday.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hehe! I love that you have pointed out the fallacy of “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” !!
