Past Imperfect – #536

It wasn’t until this precise moment that Katharine realized she might have erred slightly in selecting an outfit that would entice her betrothed on their wedding night. It didn’t help matters that newly-minted hubby immediately dialed 911 even though the system hadn’t been invented yet. Still, the show must go on, so Kate valiantly marched forward and proceeded to claim Planet Earth as her own. Planet Earth decided that Praying-Mantis Kate should not necessarily win an Oscar for this performance, and she did not. On the plus side, aluminum foil surged on the stock market and certain day-traders became millionaires. Karma is a tricky thing…

    • Oh, I need to drag out the Sylvia Scarlett photos, then. You’ll find them to be a real hoot. Oh wait, I might have already done one of those. (I sure need to fine me some Ginkoba.) But your final morality lesson is just and true…
