"the" Mrs. Astor

Monday, February 23, 2009

I--who intensely believes that no one, not one entity, not one secret service can fool me--stepped into a gigantic ruse. I was asked over and over if I would meet up with Henreitta at a late afternoon time that made no sense. We meet, like vampires. Still,I dressed and composed myself as would be required when summoned by The Queen of South Beach; some things you don't question. To my surprise Leopoldo and Henreitta staged a birthday party long, long before the actual date and they presented me with a ring containing two karats of diamonds. Unlike The Baroness Seitzinger, I am not moved by diamonds, but the thought of what my dear friends think I would like,what I would wear, and what I would always remember them for their thought, means so much that I will never remove that ring until the Bolsheviks pry it from my dead finger.

My birthday isn't until April. This was Leopoldo and Henrietta's way of catching me off guard.

Boy, if there's ever a word to flush you out of the woods, it is "diamonds".
