This week’s words: Imply Fishnet Saudade ((n.) in Portuguese folk culture) a deep emotional state of melancholic longing for a
person or thing that is absent) Ether Fast Coruscant ((adj.) sparkling or gleaming) Tulip Lenient Extravagant Glitch Incline Meaning Malfunction
Jessica Tulip loved the fashion industry. It was always fast and furious when the time came for a show, and in the current climate, she greatly missed her Portuguese mentor Pedro Coruscant the most effervescent and sparkling man she had ever worked with. She had moments of great saudade where she sat in the corner, tears running down her cheeks, as problem after problem confronted her.
The fishnets were not right or the wrong colour, the skinny model, kept having costume malfunctions which meant the organisers were threatening legal action if the model in question walked the catwalk one more time with her nipple on display.
In her mind, she asked what Pedro Coruscant have done in this crisis. Glitches in the fashion industry were like occupational hazards, a hem might drop, not every model was a perfect size eight, stuff went wrong everyone was human, and she knew Pedro would always be lenient and never imply it was anyone’s fault.
But without Pedro, she was inclined to panic and go over the top in the most extravagant ways.
She knew her behaviour was not good for those around her and so she needed to get it together and lead by example rather than go off into the ether where no one was really sure what she was on about.
So, with a new pair of fishnets and a small piece of blu-tac Jessica Tulip set herself the task of rectifying the issues that had plagued her throughout the day.
