Saturday I ran into Lois leaving Printemps. She suggested lunch to in her words – catch up. Lois is an ex-pat, her husband works for the Paris branch of an American bank. Lois really doesn’t have enough to do so she fills her time plying gossip. After complaining about exchange rates she asked what I was doing for the holidays. I told her and she thought that was a great idea and wished her family would be flexible enough to do something like that and went on to say how both their parents were pressing very hard for them to come home for Christmas, one in Maryland the other in Arizona.

I asked her what they were going to do. Stay in Paris she replied.

Sigh. I can think of several people who would happily trade places with her, family and all.

*reading that sentence over and over and over*

Kimmie. Are you saying, this woman lives in PARIS and she doesn't have enough to do???

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeezus.

Some people just don't deserve to travel anywhere outside the trailer park.

DTG, its sad but true. Lois is quite lovely and very nice, but she is one of the least creative people I know. She sees two options work or raise children. She can't work and they have not started a family.

She told me once her typical day was to meet friend(s) for a morning latte, shop, lunch, shop, meet someone for wine or tea in the afternoon then go out to dinner with her husband (a real nice guy). Some days a trip to the gym or salon substitutes for shopping.
