An Ode for my Underpants

In Uncategorized on April 9, 2008 at 1:45 am

I’d like to take a moment to share with you a more personal side of Ally.

At this late hour, I’ve taken to reflecting on my life. There’s one moment which stands out in my memory like an electrocuted cat in a line-up of puppies – the day my underpants blew away. One moment, I am innocently doing my laundry, carrying the clean clothes up from the washer in the basement, walking up the outside steps in the fresh, Nova Scotian spring breeze. The next, the cruel ocean wind rips a pair of my underpants from the basket and hurls it off into nothingness…

It took me a long time to get over that unfortunate afternoon – months. In the process of healing, I wrote an ode for those underpants. I’d like you all to experience it now.
