I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Friday letters – the In the Pink Squares #21 edition

Dear Estate/Real Estate Agents,  Based on the evidence of some newspaper and magazine advertising I have seen here in California, you seem to live in the sea, emerging when it is time to give us advice on buying or selling property.  That is the only reason I can think of as to why the photos which accompany the adverts show you either walking purposefully out of the water, grinning broadly, or standing right by the water’s edge, grinning broadly.  Is this the case?  Do you really dwell in a watery habitat?

Dear Costco,  I am afraid I am going to use the ‘C’ word here.  Yes… it is not quite the end of September and you are selling your pre-lit artificial Christmas trees, rolls of wrapping ribbon and various other festive items. I am just coming round to the idea that it is autumn now, with Hallowe’en just over a month away, so to see Christmas items for sale is hard to take.

Dear bakery cafe,  I wrote to you once before about your problems in making me a simple one shot latte, rather than your usual two shot one.  I would like to congratulate you on your efforts since receiving my letter, and the obvious customer training that has ensued, because earlier this week I was back, with the same request, and it was carried out promptly and without any kind of fuss.  It was also an excellent drink.

Dear ‘Aqua Fit’ class,  Well, that was fun!  Exercises in the sunshine in an open air pool, surrounded by a cloudless blue sky and with a bird of prey of some kind soaring in the thermals up above, are much more fun than exercises in an indoor pool surrounded by the smell of chlorine.

Dear ‘In the Pink’ challenge, Here is my contribution for Day 21 –  the pink-cheeked, smiley-faced entrance to Luna Park, which is on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour, just across from Circular Quay.

Have a good Friday.

For Becky’s September square photo challenge she would like us to share photos which embrace ‘pink’ –  there could be pink in the photo, the subject or photographer could be ‘tickled pink’*, or things/people could be looking ‘in the pink’*.  A photo that manages to do all three things is the ultimate offering.

* ‘in the pink’ means in perfect condition, or in good health, and ‘tickled pink’ means delighted.

I hope this lady on our River Seine cruise was tickled pink with her shot of the Eiffel Tower, because we were not tickled pink by her standing up constantly and obscuring our view.
