It’s a very warm, late summer morning in February.
It’s 8am and I’m already in Bathurst. My nearest regional town in my rural patch. As I get to the roundabout that takes me into Bathurst, a detour sign points me in another direction.
Because of road works.
The right hand turn into Bathurst at Kelso is controlled by traffic lights. And the traffic waiting for the lights to change is backed up past the Kelso Primary School.
As I’m waiting. I’m thinking. This traffic is more Sydney. Than a big country town.
Out of the corner of my eye, I see this vision in red. Streaking across the grounds of the school.
A young woman. With a figure to die for. Mid 30’s. Thick, dark hair wound into a messy top knot.
More sultry Eva Mendes. Rather than Holly Golightly.
Dressed in a long, red negligee.
Very see through.
I couldn’t miss the tattoo of the serpent climbing up her spine. And around her neck. To just behind her right ear.
Nor could I miss that underneath that sexy little negligee she was wearing – there was nothing.
Only the silhouette of her womanly figure.
As she approaches the line of traffic, she picks up the skirt of her filmy, red nightie, and in her bare feet, she tip toes between the cars – at a rapid pace – and runs to her very expensive, shiny black SUV parked across the street. Opens the door. Jumps in. Starts the engine. And drives off.
I burst out laughing. In the car. Out loud. To myself.
My goodness, says me. The dress code for taking children to school has certainly changed since I was a little girl.
And can’t help but wonder . . .
. . . if I’m the only one in that line of traffic going . . .
Oh! My! God!
And your reaction is . . . . . ??
