The Coat In Paris, Part 2

Jump to last reply

Awoke at 10 AM to a brilliantly sunshiny day. We sailed out the door to breakfast lightly clad, then immediately hustled back inside in search of our coats. Note to Floridian self: sun don't mean a thing if the air ain't like Spring.

Heads tucked against wintry blasts, we marched to the Ecole Militaire Metro with the carefully plotted schedule of Day Two's activities in hand. That was perhaps our last moment of compliance with my grandiose scheme to maximize travel to designated targets and minimize aimless wandering.

The next nine hours were spent meandering about in serendipity's Lost and Found Department, randomly popping up like inquisitive rabbits from Metro stations in arrondisments scattered all across the city's center.

Though we searched from one end of rue de Bac to the other and were repeatedly directed to Deyrolle's taxidermy shop, we saw not one hair of a stuffed house cat or a dead chihuahua. The Permanent Pets have evidently decamped to warmer climes. The entire menagerie may in fact be at this moment sprawled in lounge chairs on the lawn of my Florida apartment wearing Ray Bans and bikinis.

Ah well, another day, another Parisian safari.
