So, this was Merriam


So this was Merriam. Her hair was gray and face wrinkled, her hands were knotted up like a boy scout practice rope. She was slightly pudgy , she cut and styled her own hair, and for the most part did a good job. She wore glasses that swooped low on the sides before rising to the ear, and if you didn’t know better you would swear they were on upside down. They would darken when she went in to the sun. This of course protected her eyes but made her face look grumpy. She loved floral prints which most of her blouses were covered in, and though they were the type of blouse usually accompanied by a skirt Merriam only wore jeans, and like I mentioned before, the ensemble was completed with her red shoes.
