Sx3: All Toured Out

As y'all already know, 'tis the season in DC, the Capital of the Free World. The elementary, middle & high school tour groups are out in Full Force, as it were. When I was at the Tidal Basin doing a little Cherry Blossom Peeping the other day, I kept bumping into oodles & oodles of class-trippers from other parts of the country.

I took this Superior Snap on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial. A gaggle of gals from a Lakeland, FLA high school dance team, in town for the Cherry Blossom Parade & other festivities, was resting up in the shadow of Our Nation's 3rd Prez. All of them were gabbing & generally hanging out, except for this one sleepy chica, who decided it was time for a Power Nap.

I was taken with the juxtaposition of colors & accoutrements on the granite steps. Dance tights & satin jacket; hot-pink skirt & T-shirt drapped nonchalantly over the face. Black nylon accessories tote doubles as a pillow, of sorts. Particularly adore the artfully placed Mickey D's bag & the carelessly flung left hand. She looks like she's really asleep, doesn't she?

You know what to do, Scribe Fans! Take a gander at this Superior Snap. Conjure a Caption for Said Snap, and tippy-type it, real quick-like, in the comments section of this post. Of course, you won't win anything tangible this time around. Care Bear tapped me out on my Blogoversary Sx3 last week. But you will win Mrs. Scribe's admiration & approbation. What could be better than that?

Hoping to avoid utter humiliation, Jennifer dove for cover when she realized her plot to ditch her doting chaperone-mother had been foiled.

Proof that nature abhors not only a vacuum but also certain shades of pink and green.

Mrs S, I haven't forgotten the Superior Scribbler to-do list...just really bogged in pre-spring break duties! Why, why, why did the district decide to give us the third week of April off and not an earlier week? :)

It had been a tough day for this little miss, and not getting a toy in her Happy Meal was the last straw.

CAPTION: "Dressing to impress, Heather wears her Chocolate Bunny costume on the Washington field trip. Abruptly, mortification seizes the day: the forgotten garb’s upper-half is back on the bus! Heather keels."
