(A lyrical account in the style of Laura Numeroff of our recent Chamberlain girl Estrogen Summit at our dear sister Linda’s home in Victoria, B.C. )
And if you’re eating bridge mix, you might just need a good book.
So you peruse the bookshelves to find this:
But settle on “The Power of One” by Linda’s recommendation.
And after eating bridge mix and reading you need to get the blood going, so you take a bike ride.
And if you go on a bike ride, your chain might come off.
If your chain falls off, you’ll have to ride down to a beautiful beach
And if you pick blackberries, you’ll have to make Lemon Blackberry Pavlova.
And if you eat pavlova, you might just need to lay on the couch and look out the window.
And if you see a stormy sunset brewing, you may need to run down to the beach through the rain, defying all reason and almost getting killed by a taxi.
And if you make it to the beach alive, you’ll get to see the cruise ships casting off.
And that will remind you to return home and try and finish your book.
And if you finish your book you’ll need to walk downtown to the Munro’s Bookstore. You’ll pass by The Empress.
After Dim Sum you'll need coconut buns.
And eat one right away.
After all that eating, you’ll need to do some kayaking.
Where you terrorize the wildlife,Take pictures of your feet,
And eat while admiring Paul’s artwork around the house.
And take in the flowers
And if you eat turtle pie for lunch, you’re going to have to eat sushi for dinner. (You know, yin and yang.)
And if you've stuffed yourself beyond belief, laughed until you peed your pants, cried profusely, exercised until your legs burned, and played speed Scrabble until it was very, very late, it might just be time to go home.
And if it's almost time to go home, you might just need to make one more pie.
