Okay, Okay. The Infamous Robe

For some perverse reason some of you made a point of wanting to see me in my “wear around the house all day when I’m not going outside robe”. Why any of you would ever want to see this is way beyond my comprehension. Some quirk in your nature? Some little hint of voyeurism perhaps? When you take a stroll through your neighborhood at night, do you hope everyone else has their drapes and blinds open and their lights on so that you can see inside? Oh…I do that. So there’s nothing wrong with that, but I don’t necessarily want to see them walking around in their robes, as some of you seem to want. That’s the difference between us.

So whatever the reasons that are lurking in your brains, I decided to do as you wish and take a photo of myself wearing “THE ROBE”. Keep in mind that since I couldn’t stretch my arm out in front of me far enough to get a shot of anything other than my nose, I had to take this picture while looking in the mirror. And since I couldn’t use the flash, it didn’t come out quite as clear as I would have liked. The shutter speed is a bit slower without the flash and I’m not known for having the steadiest of hands.

And since I wanted to be squeaky clean for this event, I took a shower first and that is why the towel is wrapped around my wet hair. Also, just so you know, while I was taking a shower the curtain kept sliding down the wall. I have one of those spring tension rods and evidently the spring is sprung and the curtain kept sliding down, one time falling completely off and landing on the floor. That was fun. I’m just mentioning this part so you know the trouble I went through to get you this picture that you so desperately wanted to see.

Those of you who know me personally already know what I look like of course and will not be the least surprised by this picture. Those of you who think you know how I might look just by the tone of my blog (you know who you are), will probably not be surprised either. The rest of you….well, you’ll see.

With all that being said……..drum roll please


Everybody happy now?

Your fingers look a little different than what I had imagined. It's a bit of a surprise, to be honest, but I'll get over it.

LOL LOL again! You look so much different than what I had imagined. That robe isn't so ratty looking either :)

flydragon said...

Marnie,
You thought I would be taller, right?

DG,
My fingers look a little different to me, too, and I'm not sure I will get over it.

farside,
You didn't know I was quite the glamour girl, did you? The robe does bring out the beautiful paleness of my skin, doesn't it?

T said...

Oh My, I had no idea you were my sister in laws twin;)(oops, did I say that out loud?)

Nice Robe:)

flydragon said...

T,
They say everyone has a twin somewhere. Too bad she's related to you.
And it is my favorite robe. My only robe come to think of it. No wonder it's my favorite.

Hey I see it was one of your better days. Looking good!!!!!!Middle sis

flydragon said...

Betty,
I usually do take such a lousy, ugly picture so I'm glad this one came out so "picture perfect". I also notice that you and I are looking more alike every year.

Mildred said...

flydragon said...

Mildred,
This is indeed a glamour shot. The best one I've ever had in fact. Pretty good, agreed?

FD#3,
You're just realising now what the rest of us have always known? Bet you wish you were adopted now, don't you?

I now know I wasn't adopted either... Dad always said I was hatched.

Rudee said...

Hahahahahaha. Very nice. Are there bread crumbs that lead to your door?

beckie said...

I wasn't one of the ones who wanted to see you in your robe-honest! But since you are showing it and you, I'll tell you I am in awe of how you touched up your photo to make yourself look so gorgeous. I need to learn how to do that. Oh, and the robe while comfy looking may not get you on a best dressed list-sorry.

flydragon said...

Ariz brat,
Hatched? As in finding a large egg in a large nest somewhere and bringing it home to see what would develope? Sorry, but my memories of that time are slightly different, and since you look like me too, I think mine are the correct ones.

Rudee,
Who are you calling a witch? And how did you know about the crumbs?

beckie,
It took me a long time and a lot of work to make me look that good. And I probably should have gone with my pink frilly, ruffled, feathered robe with my matching pink furry slipper pumps to really bring out my beauty.

Di said...

Ah yes, you haven't changed a bit. You're just like I remembered.

flydragon said...

Di,
Yep, I'm still the same little cutie.

Not Very Anonymous Mom said...

(May have to change my blog name so people won't think we're related in any way!)

flydragon said...

Nan,
Maybe you can talk me into posting something about you. And no mention of how pretty I look? Although you can change your name as often as you like, I will make sure to let everyone know who you really are.
