"I shall not be relegated to the background from this day forth," she declared. "I may have been born as camouflage garb, but, as sure as I'm Suede, I shall rise above my circumstances."
And rise she did, seeking out a rebellious perch. There, on higher ground, she prevailed upon those who sought to contain her in monochromatic surroundings.
The Suede Booties harumphed, having won the upper hand (or foot, as this case may be). There she stayed, that foggy day, secure in her small but meaningful triumph.
Do you wake up defiant some days?

This Foolish Aesthete is just out on a foolish lark. Blame it on Charles Dickens. I hadn't picked up Dickens since my tween-and-teen days and decided to re-read "Great Expectations." Little did I remember how cleverly funny Dickens was in this novel!
