Yes, that is a long cigarette holder in my hand.
Yes, there is a highball glass full of ice and old scotch in my other hand.
You might also note there is a gardenia pinned in my hair. And I am suitably attired in a black nightgown.
What you might not know is that this photo was taken about 8 AM by a friend who kept my cigarettes lit, my drink full, my orchid fresh, and my kids fed. Oh, he also took the photos to document. He thought I was very interesting.
One weekend of this, and the romance is history. You do it your way, I'll do it mine.
