Fashionable Friday : Agent Violet and the Unyielding Assignation

{Fashion and fluffballs illustration : Hedging One's Fashion Bets © Shell-Sherree}

Agent Violet paced.  It helped her sift through the infinite possibilities constantly flitting across both sides of her brain and secure the pertinent ones akin to Harry Potter capturing the Golden Snitch.  Sometimes it worked, sometimes they eluded her and she had to hang onto her broomstick ~ or in her case, her spontaneous wardrobe-change abilities. 

The meeting with The Groomer had been uneventful, aside from a moment of silent mutual discomfiture when he discovered her Eclair Contact had used Vegemite in lieu of his favourite aniseed and bourbon paste.  Their rivalry was bitter, akin to the Seville orange from whose tree they fell out ~ and had a falling out ~ late one heady night in Andalucia several seasons ago.  It's a long story for another time. 

On the plus side, her assignation with The Groomer was fairly swift and free of obvious peril.  On the minus side, it yielded nothing.  The Groomer scanned The Harlequin Hat Box with every device in his impressive arsenal and came up blank.  When they opened it according to Sir Percy's missive, armed with trepidation and shielded by her Ninja silkworm cape, they were met with an empty box and feelings to match. Pacing wasn't cutting the mustard.  She would have to take to the ping pong table instead.

Will Agent Violet's feline beat her at table tennis?  Must her canine change from French Bulldog to English in order to fetch the ping pong balls? And what strange secret is held by The Harlequin Hat Box in a mysterious Place Not Yet Found.  Let us wince delicately as we sip on Chinotto and speculate.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. Is there a prize for the winner of table tennis? Will it provide the next clue to the Big Secret? Is the Bulldog holding back information?
    (More Chinotto, please...;))

    1. Astute questions, dear Ms M !! I suspect her canine is only a keeper of his own secrets, but her feline... I'm not so sure. The Chinotto is loosening our tongues if not theirs... ;)

  2. Sure, I'd prefer aniseed and bourbon paste over Vegemite any day, but, hey, I'm American. I think I'm beginning to mistrust the Groomer—just sayin'.

    1. I grew up on Vegemite and I'd take the aniseed and bourbon, too, ma chere !! That said, Cadbury put out a Vegemite chocolate block here. Last time I checked, it was not being embraced by we natives. ;) As for The Groomer .... his tastebuds may be impeccable but his motives? Perhaps not ...

  3. Perhaps she'll meet a magician who'll be able to find something in the hatbox. Or perhaps her pets will protect her from such chicanery.

    1. Ooh, where there's a magician, there's a rabbit, Petrea !

    2. Hmm, but could a rabbit get along with kitty and pooch?

    3. Hmmm, good point, Petrea. In Agent Violet's world, anything is possible ... whether a bunny tests the theory, we could see !
