Winter Flash – Delirious

Delicious ran newly calloused hands up legs encased in silk, praying she would get the seam straight without a snag.  Slipping on low-heels, she stared in the mirror turning checking her appearance, frowning.

‘I should be just coming in, not just waking’, she thought.

“Delicious, you ready honey?”

“Yes, I’m coming right now.”

“You look great, no one will ever know what you used to be, are you happy?”

“Delirious George, let’s get to church.”

    So delicious indeed, I like this a lot Val 🙂

    I remember a documentary some time ago
    about the war years, where ladies used an
    eye brow pencil to draw line, giving the fine
    expression of those sexy stockings 🙂

    I know this for instance has nothing to do
    with your FTP but what an amazing idea 🙂

    Have a lovely evening and weekend Val 🙂

    • They did indeed do that, do you know why? It was for want of silk which was all being used for the war effort, mostly for parachutes. I love silk stockings still, they have such a wonderful feel to them.

  2. Great visuals … will be thinking of calloused hands and silk stockings …. 🙂 Very nice play on words.

  3. Seems like you are using the countering two sides of the working girl’s coin. 😉

  4. Okay, you lost me on this one 😦

  5. I really like this one! Reminds me of a character I once wrote about. I remember hose with seams – kind of sexy.
