Chaplet - I'm really trying not to cheat here but chaplet! Oh well - here goes... first the definition:
chaplet - A wreath or garland for the head.
I'm not sure how you are supposed to make these flowers actually stick together without...uh...glue or string. I know from girls I've seen wearing them that they just find these flowers, like Chamomile or something wild, and make them all chain together and then plop them on their heads and look ever so fetching. I want to be a hippy-chick. I mean I am one but some of the stuff around it eludes me man! I've got my berry-picking dress on - I found it at the Sally-Ann and it is sprigged all over with lavender flowers and it is way too big for me and I know that is right. I took my shoes off and put them in the knapsack I made out of Raven's old blue jeans. He won't notice even though the front pocket is embroidered, Embroidery that I did for him. He's not noticing me much these days. Probably because I'm not groovy enough for him. We're all at People's Park which is pretty grotty and not all that park-like but it is the best we've got. I guess they chose this place because it was central but I think it's kind of lame considering all the green areas of Ottawa. Lebreton Flats is its real name. I wonder who Lebreton was? Some poor old joe-farmer I guess and now there's all these people all over the place smoking weed and listening to music and just hanging loose.
And me? I'm down in the lower field where it hasn't been totally trampled - yet. And I'm gathering up clover blossoms which aren't the best but they're the best I can do. Clover and buttercups and I'm looking for something that will hold them together so I can make this chaplet thingy. That's what they're called. No one knows that and I better keep my mouth shut because no one wants to know anything like that. I read it in this book I'm reading about Anne Boleyn. She was Henry the Eight's second wife. The book is called Brief Gaudy Hour and it is all about how she had to really fight and struggle to be accepted against all odds and pretend she didn't know anything about anything and just lah-di-dah around the court playing card games and making costumes for masques. I feel for her. I do.
