Summer Outfit

Harriet's Summer Outfit
"I just don't understand why she's wearing a life vest," he told me the other day, standing on my porch.

"That's her summer outfit! She had a cute straw hat with sunglasses, but the wind kept blowing it off. I think it's inside here somewhere...."

"But why a life vest? Can't she swim? She's a goose."

"That's true, but well.... she is made of concrete you know."

"Huh, good point." He looked at her again. "In that case, I don't think that little life vest is going to keep her afloat."

"Then it's a good thing I don't live by a lake."
