Miss, Did You Drop This?

First off, when you’re called Miss at my age, you’re having a good day.

To be called Miss by a handsome, well-heeled, polite forty-year old that looks like a matinee idol is like winning The Derby.

Seems I dropped my scarf I Babe Paleyed around my straw satchel he chivalrously  rescued attempting to return.

Barbara Paley, known as Babe, considered one of the classiest, chicest women who ever lived, images-2.jpeg started the trend with her Hermes scarf tied jauntily around her Chanel, Birkin, Gucci, Pucci handbags.

I didn’t hear him as he must have tried getting my attention because, suddenly he was in front of me, the scarf held delicately as if it were the Holy Grail.

“Oh,” I said, looking down at my naked bag, “that belongs to me.”

“I know,” he said, letting a dimple slip enhancing an already, awfully sexy smile.

Then it dawns on me how upset I would have been if I had actually lost it since, it belonged to my late, great friend Jackie I so loved and chronically miss.

Without thinking, after taking it from his outstretched hand, grabbed his waist gratefully hugging him.

One could say, my girl got loose.

“Forgive me,” I quickly said, realizing what I had done. “This scarf really means the world to me, and besides,” I said, doing my best Bette Davis, “what else to do when you meet Sir Lancelot.”

That smile that was already pretty big, tripled in size. Unknown.jpeg

    It’s so nice to know gallant gentlemen are still around, especially nice when they are matinee idols. You did the right thing with that hug. I’m sure he felt sufficiently rewarded by the grateful miss.

    Welp, I WOULD say you still got it. But the truth is, SB . . you never lost it in the first place.

    Delightful story! Yes, it would have been a shame to lose that scarf, in particular.

    • She died in 2009, and I asked her husband for one because it was her signature to always wear one. I had it for almost 10 years before I could bring myself to clean it, since it still smelled of her cologne. I finally gave in. I could hear her giggle from the ether.

    What a lovely thing. Chivalry is not dead… and to have Sir Lancelot be the rescuer to boot? That is major bonus.


  7. Oh, my! I’m ready to swoon. I wish someone had videoed the return of the scarf and added romantic music.

  8. Sounds like you made each other’s day. 🙂 Luckily he was there and not someone else who wouldn’t have said anything.
