Shopping Trip

This is the lady I work for, Ms. Skittering. On the first day I arrived for work, the lady took one look at me and said that we needed to go shopping immediately if I was going to work here. Apparently, my blue suit doesn't match the decor of her house. Ms. Skittering insisted on buying me a new suit. The above picture was taken after our very long shopping trip and we were headed to Ms. Skittering's favorite cafe. Notice she dressed to match the decor of the cafe. Where ever she goes, she has to match her surroundings. I told you she was an eccentric little chipmunk!

Oh Walter darling I am so very sorry about the wardrobe changes with Ms. Skittlings. You know those little chipmunks can be rather snippy and very demanding. They want things done quick and in a hurry if you know what I mean. I should like to know what color suit she would be requiring that you wear. Oh I do hope that it's rather dashing and tasteful. My I ask how long you've been working for the dear lady???
I say, It must be exciting to be shopping with her, but then again you are of the male gender and this might not be as exciting for you. I wonder will she require you to wear matching clothes like hers??? Oh dear!! Walter please let me know if you are in need of assistance in looking for a new job! I just love your daperness and your beautiful and handsome blue suit!!! call me!!
Sincerely
Lady Good Nectar

Oh Walter please, please forgive me for spelling Ms. Skittering name wrong. I think I've been so concerned for you that I've forgotten my good spelling!!! Oh dear, Oh me. On any account I should like to meet your Ms. Skittering. Please extend my invitation to her for Tea on Friday! By the way, I do so love, love, love this wonderful illustration! It's so whimsical and wonderful! I adore your characters as well. Such a wonderful start to a great story!!!
Sincerely Lady Good Nectar

I'm sorry Ms. Skittering is a bit bossy with your clothes. You look quite dapper, Walter, in your blue suit.

I think you look fine in your blue suit! I hope Ms. Skittlings doesn't make you change too much!

If you want some cheering up, I can stop by some time this week and we can have tea (if the eccentric chipmunk will allow it). I can bring some of my famous red velvet cupcakes with magic happy sprinkles!

I love your chipmunk! I have to say, I've started my character about a dozen times, and then change my mind. I think the first attempts were too serious, so I'm cooking up a fun one...someone who will get along with Ms. Skittering. We just got a second pet bunny, so I think Dante' will be moving to the woods soon!

I know, I know, Ms. Skittering is a bit bossy, but she's still a girl after my own heart. After all, her answer to all her problems is to do some serious shopping, and Walter did get a new suit out of the deal! Heh, heh.

I'm developing my character and I think that she and Ms. Skittering will get to be fast friends...
