DARQ: I’m wishing everyone a
and showing off my newest pair of shoes.
CATHERINE (mumbling): Always the shoes!
DARQ scoffs, then smiles and points to the rock: What do you think of my piece of the Blarney Stone, Catherine?
CATHERINE: It’s not THE Blarney Stone.
DARQ: What do you mean? The guys said they chipped it out of the backside of the Blarney Stone and made it especially for me.
CATHERINE: I think you’ve been had. That rock you have is . . . (Catherine uses a screwdrive to scrape a bit of paint off the bottom of the rock). Yep. It’s cement.
DARQ: I’ve been had!
CATHERINE: Didn’t I just say that? Maybe you should ask for a new team of Men In Black to guard you on your trips to those undisclosed locations they whiz you off to so you can do your ambassador thing.
DARQ: But I like the guys. And they don’t play practical jokes all that often.
CATHERINE shrugges, then says: How did the outfit go over at the dinner party last night?
DARQ: Lots of compliments on the simplicity, the fabric, the haute couture design–
CATHERINE: Whoa. That’s not haute couture. I made it from one of your Wysotti fashion plates.
DARQ grins, then says: I know that. You know that. They don’t! Now, show the folks who stop at this blog what I looked like in my Saint Patrick’s Day duds.
CATHERINE: Readers–here she is, Darq in her “haute couture” Wysotti garb:
and what Darq’s holding is a token that says “I’m a wee bit Irish.” So, from Darq and me–
****Note to Sewers: The fabric is a very lightweight polyester material woven in the tiniest of herringbone weaves so it has a nap that’s like ultra-suede. This is a two piece outfit, the tunic (with long coat-like back) goes over full legged pants.
Next update will be for Easter–Darq will wear a dress, the pattern will be another Wysotti “haute couture” design.
