“Forgive me if it goes astray.”  Tonight we’re going to see Prince in concert.

“She wore a raspberry beret…”  I could be wrong, but isn’t that The Glamourai?  
I look like a total dud in berets, so I won’t be wearing one.  But there is a real good chance I’ll be wearing my long, black chiffon skirt and my bright red (sexy lips, really that’s the name) Laura Mercier lipstick.

So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s… you know the rest.
