I have built a portfolio from scratch, as I cannot find the portfolio (full of work I might have liked to show today) that is somewhere in my house. I have gone to Walgreen’s for hosiery, come home, found them to be navy instead of black, and gone back to Walgreen’s for more hosiery. I have ironed my no-iron shirt and almost ruined my part-rayon pants by having the iron too hot. But! I found my lost pearl earrings, so I’m taking that as a good sign. Greg got them for me on our first dating anniversary, and I’ve managed to hang on to him for more than nine years afterward. They are my good-lucks!
