Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Otis Redding, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay
What if…you had absolutely no responsibilities in life?
Each morning, just before the sun rises, I would slip out of bed, vacating the cool, crisp sheets that had surrounded me through the night; snatch my Cady Cuff Metallic Shorts off the bureau, topping them with Alice + Olivia’s Carrie Classic Shirt with Rolled Cuffs; and, with Rag & Bone Victoria Wedge Sandals dangling from the fingertips of one hand, and Bop Basics’ Open Weave Fedora with Canvas Trim held loosely in the other, I would steal away in the dusky morning. My bare feet would leave a trail of footprints upon the dew-drenched walkway as I skip along the dock, coming to a halt with a plop at the very end, and casting my legs over the edge to hover above the icy water, just as a mix of pink, red, orange, purple, and blue enters the sky, signifying the true arrival of a new day.
From morning ‘til night my activities would be a mix of sitting languidly along the dock, allowing my thoughts to wander and think up fantastical things alongside a soundtrack featuring a blend of Rooney, Coconut Records, MGMT, Belle & Sebastian, and The Kooks swirling through my brain via the accompaniment of my trusty iPod; lying belly down, my legs swinging thoughtlessly in the air as I devour book after book with sweet treats galore close by; and carelessly dipping my toes in and out of the water sending innocent shocks of excitement through my body. Then, once night falls, I would retreat back home for the evening, only to plan the very same thing for the next day!
What would your days be like if you had absolutely no responsibilities in life, kitty cats? What would you wear? How would you spend your time? Better yet, who would you spend your time with? Dish dolls; you know you want to!
