Tale 1: A Sweet Smelling Savour
I almost did not make it into the high school of my choice.
Not for a lack of succeeding but due to my first encounter with veins of corruption - someone swapped my name out.
But that's a tale for another day.
I did make it and have since passed on the Torch, still brightly shining.
A teacher's daughter I was expected to toe the line - I did more of skirting it I must say.
I looked forward to my birthday, that first term knowing my family would pull through - lovely Birthday treats with gifts.
What I did not expect was that someone whom I had yet to really know would think of me.
That which I least expected came, a lovely wrapped gift, an Elizabeth Arden Red Door perfume.
I remain hooked decades later.
Thank you Tosyn Bucknor - for making my day, decades ago!
May your life never cease to smell great! You still rock!
