Alexandra the Great
Her name is Alexandra the great. It’s happening in the bathroom. We can’t see her shoes. It’s near the Acropolis. It’s in the afternoon, the weather is fine and warm and beautiful under the stars. She’s tired because she has come from Canada and she has been working.
She wants to go to the toilet. She maybe tired. Doreen went around there to see what she could see and she saw quite a bit. Nick is going to take her by both hands and swing her around and around and around and take her dancing. At the end of it he would give her ten big kisses. Maria said he was very romantic. Bravo! She does have a family but they are at home. She was living where they were selling things and then she had to go back to her other job. She was very good in the beginning and she got around before. She was walking a lot of the time early in the morning. She is very happy in this special country. She began to dance like Maria’s mother and her father sang a song. Val couldn’t hear any sounds but Nick could hear dancing sounds. This beautiful lady went to where the boats were. She wanted a proper skirt. You could hear quite a lot of sounds. She has a gypsy dress on. Maria sings a Gypsy song in Greek. She likes to smell food, any food. She is very happy she’s going around on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea and they had a party. She asked the Captain “can we get married?’ She gets married and every week she goes around on the sea.
