The puppy and I assumed this position A LOT
I had one great skirt, long and billowy and I wore it constantly
When it was time to wash it I put the clean billowy skirt out to dry on the washing line which is cantilevered off the balcony -the flat is up at the top of the building.
I didn't put enough pegs on the skirt so when I next looked out of the window my skirt was no longer there. I went outside and leaned over the balcony - my skirt had caught on the washing line of someone below - but very delicately. Before it blew off again I rushed downstairs and knocked on the door of the apartment and as I waited for the reply and noticed the tumbleweed in the corridors I realised that I was the only person stupid enough to be in Barcelona at this time of year - everyone else has found a mountain to visit.
The puppy and I gazed down at the skirt and decided that it would definitely blow away in the night.
Over the following days I peered down below to see my skirt still just hanging on down there - then about a week later I came in the front door of the building at the same time as a lady with her arms full of ciabatta she looked at me suspiciously and said
where are you?
I said that I was with the puppy in the top apartment
Ah - the two boys - where have they gone?
I told her - then she said
I was in the mountains for two months - I have your skirt would you like it back?
