Ta-Ta (for now!) - Paris, France!

I wanted to share with ya'll a few more photos that my GOOD bloggy-pal
Lisa of OMyWord took of moi while I was hanging with her in Paris...
Do you know what this is a picture of?
It's a never before seen and very bodacious view of the Eiffel Tower!
...as seen through my eyes cups.
Lisa and awesome My Pair O' Chaperons, Heather and April, exposed me to
lots of new and wonderful things in Paris...but my most surprising discovery was
that I LOVE DISCO!
balls, that is...not music.
Here I am at Sacré-Cœur Basilica, a Roman Catholic church on Montmarte. Perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (a consecrated host which has been turned into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ) has continued uninterrupted in the Basilica since 1885. Visitors are asked to dress appropriately and to observe silence so as not to disturb those who have come to pray in this special place. So I respectfully yanked up my straps and
controlled myself - just like a good bra should.
On my last night in Paris, I gazed at the stars and wondered aloud where life (& FedEx) would lead me next. I really didn't want to leave...I'd fallen in love with Paris (and rather attached to Lisa)...it was almost like being in a dream, or a movie even! Then Lisa, being the wise woman that she is, grabbed me and said:

Olga, last night we said a great many things. You said I was to do the thinking for both of us. Well, I've done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing: you're getting on that Fed Ex plane tomorrow where you belong.

Me: But, Lisa, no, I... I...

Lisa: Now, you've got to listen to me! You have any idea what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten we'd both wind up in a concentration camp! (Note: she'd been a fair amount of drinking wine that night.)

Me: You're saying this only to make me go.

Lisa: I'm saying it because it's true. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not on it, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

Me: But what about us?

Lisa: We'll always have Paris. Now, now...here's looking at you kid.

Me: Lisa, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Au revoir Paris! (for now!)

Omyword! said...

OLGA!! I never thought you'd tell the whole world about our secret, tragic love! And THEN I find out that you were with SOMEONE ELSE in Paris! You didn't get on that plane after all. I was crushed, as I'm sure you have felt from time to time in those FedEx envelopes (FedEx has no idea how much free advertising they're getting. Lisa makes mental note.)

By the way, only That Guy was brave enough to face the possibility of lightening striking his sinful hell-going ass and go INSIDE the church and hang a bra, albeit a gorgeous bra, but a bra nonetheless, on the respectful dress sign.

When he re-emerged from the dark, virginal and cloisterous depths of Catholicismland, he said, "You girls owe me a thousand dollars. I just got the best shot of Olga ever."

I'm still counting out centimes and hope to reach $1000 before the dollar/euro exchange rate hits $5 for every 1 Euro. sigh. Photographers can be expensive.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

OMyLisa - Please give That Guy a GREAT BIG HUG for me!...I do appreciate him risking his immortal soul to get that AWESOME shot of me inside the church! But I think (hope) God has a sense of humor too, don't you?
Here's looking at you kid! ;)
