i forgot to mention that chelle has started working at the airport for george. it's a private company with a contract to clean airplanes between flights. it's a hurry up as fast as you can kind of sweep through a plane then sit for a spell in a break room waiting for the next flight. chelle sees this as a great opportunity to practice spanish with her co-workers. she's learned some new words not mentioned before in spanish I, II, III, and IV. in the last week she's convinced the ladies to teach her how to salsa, mamba and meringue. (hope the spelling's close!) first they had to ask permission to bring in a cd player and some music. okayed by the boss. now they're sweating away through their breaks, hips rolling, breasts and shoulders shaking, no, like thees! they say as one lady stands behind chelle grabbing her sides, hands pushing her breasts, moving her chest from side to side and chelle roars in laughter. they tell her she has it in her blood and she takes this as the highest form of praise, sangre. caliente! they laugh, fanning themselves as they rush out with buckets, mops, brooms and rags to the next plane. this is chelle and i miss her. it's time for me to start sharing her with the world though. caliente! sangre! wake up!
today we get to see Stace. we're not bringing her home, just a good deal of her stuff. she'll be camping another month in the living room while she finishes her job at the museum before heading home for the summer. it will be good to see her. she'll come home about the time chelle leaves. this will be an interesting flip. we haven't had her to ourselves since she was 3. she's grown some since then. it will be nice to spend some time alone with her. she is a quiet, gentle, very private exterior that hides an intensely burning flame. she reminds me of a rabbit, gentle, shy, quiet, ever aware, heart beating wildly under soft, dull fur, in the dark when you least expect it, a blood curdling scream pierces the air.
i've been so blessed. so very blessed.
and i haven't even told you about c.
