She Said She Had Been With The Bolshoi

She was posing and winking provocatively beneath the statue in front of Saint Giles Cathedral. She had a little tin cup for tips and spoke with a Russian accent. I said that winking at strangers must be very ‘freeing’ and she agreed, but then probably I could have said that milk is white and she would have winked.

In a voice of melodramatic regret he said she had been with the Bolshoi and I blurted out ‘You’re short!’ – and she gave me the craftiest wink.

  1. Cute article, David, with a very catchy title to boot. Uh, prejudiced comment about this zany lady’s height and the ballet, however, since who knows how the Bolshoi does its selections, eh? 🙂
