Security Was Called...

Dalyce: Week 32
Firstly, isn't this just a great moment?  I'm so glad I caught it.
Taking these kinds of photos just makes me happy.
Now I have to tell the story behind it.

This was Week 32 of Project Baby, yes I know I haven't posted Week 30 or 28,
I just need to tell you this story now.... before I forget it.

Doesn't Mrs. D look stunning?
I told her about this space I had in mind for our next picture
and wondered if she might have a dress to wear for week 32.

She found one, and it was perfect.
The pictures turned out far better than I could have ever imagined.
One beautiful pose after another.

This shot was a little more candid than the others.
If you have ever had your picture taken by me,
you will know I spend a lot of time on my tummy.
I've also perfected many walrus seal maneuvers
to allow me to quickly move from my side to tummy to side
and sometimes I throw in a forward roll for good measure.  I kid.  sort of.

We had the whole huge space to ourselves, 
and as we were ending our photo shoot, while I was on my tummy, 
in my Sunday best, you know... a nice skirt and sweater set. 
I saw a white clothed individual out of the corner of my eye.

I looked up and she took a moment before she said, "oh, you're taking pictures?"
From the floor, I said, "Yes I am."
Seeing as she was obviously a security guard, I was worried she might ask us to leave.
She said she had been watching me from an upstairs balcony,
and didn't know what was happening.
She only saw a middle aged lady rolling around in a huge massive hall,
and somehow she did not see my camera.
And thinking about the space, I suspect, as she walked down the huge hall,
it was likely she saw only my flailing legs and skirt.

When I realized what I may have looked like,  I let her know I was perfectly OK,
that I wasn't suffering from any sort of seizure or anything.

I told her it must have looked odd,
and could only imagine what she must have been thinking.
Still on the floor, I announced loudly in my best security voice,  
"Woman down in auditorium, I repeat woman down!"

The security guard without a word, turned around and left.

It was funnier if you were there.
Just look at the photo of Mrs. D.
I took the picture just as I finished my announcement!

I think I'm going to call this photo "Belly Laugh."
