Her Name Was Cassandriana

7 Feb

A long line of longs

She said her name was Cassandriana. Not a-na, but awe-na. Cassandriawna. She was the kind of person who made sure you always said ‘awe-na’. It was fitting that her name was long. Five syllables. That’s a lot of syllables. But Cassandriana came from a long line of longs, with legs longer than her history, arms that were long – not mutant long but super model or Grace Kelly long. Her hair was long and she flicked it back with her long fingers and long acrylic nails. The only thing that wasn’t long about Cassandriana was her temper. Especially if you, per chance, pronounced it a-na instead of awe-na.

    What a div-awe :) Love the short temper/ long legs scenario. I suffer from this ailment from time to time!

      This was a fun one that came from a conversation with a friend. The older I get the longer my temper becomes…
