Today I happened to read what I published nearly two years ago about feeling hot after my morning walk with Irene. Apparently feeling hot like this reminded me of a character in one of Lily Brett’s books. Here is what I wrote about it:
‘You gotta have Balls’
“This is the title of a book by Lily Brett. This very funny novel was first published in Australia in 2005. One character in the book is a buxom sixty-something woman who came from Poland to New York and loves to cook meat-balls. She tends to feel hot while she’s doing the cooking. This is why she stands in her kitchen in her beautiful, elegant bra with just an apron on top of it.
After my morning walk I felt hot again and had to strip down to my bra. I helped hubby in the kitchen with the breakfast dishes and didn’t even wear an apron on top of it! When I do this sort of thing, I’m always reminded of that buxom woman in the book.
Lily Brett is an Australian writer and lives with her Australian painter husband, David Rankin, in New York.”
