Exhibitionism at Chateau Versailles


It’s been snowing around here. That is to say it has been snowing exactly a week ago, but the snow still covers all of the park of Chateau Versailles: The temperature stays low and without any traffic, nobody but the employees have access to the park, the snow will not melt any time soon. This morning the old ladies are crawling out all bundled up. There outside Saint Louis Cathedral  half-a-dozen of crazy catholic boy-scouts are pushing each other just to keep warm. These kids are wearing shorts all year around. “Hey, tell your mom, you need some pants, will you?” Kids are alright, as long as they have pretty moms. Damn, I feel like I have gone half-crazy myself, jogging around town in a weather like this. My right ear is numb and aching. It’s sunny alright, but the thermometer is showing minus eight Celsius. What happened to the mild winter we had in January? Where are the girls in mini-skirts? Wow! Here is one, and on three inch heels too. Mama, she is Japanese! Must be lost or something. As much as I want to encourage this type of attire, today is not the day. Right now I need a girl in a fur-coat, like that one. What? Have you seen that? For a second I’ve lost my balance. The woman has flashed me. Things you get to see around here. These women come from all over the world. Today the park is closed and she has no choice but to go into town. I wonder how Versailles turns them on, not the town — the Chateau. Which books do they read? Still, even naked, she must be pretty warm inside her fur-coat. I need a fur-coat.
