A to Z Challenge { P }

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts
for April's A to Z Challenge!
I'm testing my writing skills with fiction.
These may consist of an opening paragraph, or might even end up as an entire short-story.
I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.
Today's letter:  P
 
Petula was not one you would consider palaver; however when she did speak people perked up. Petula, though pauclioquent, was a parabolist. Her stories were always interesting, but it was Petula herself that piqued the most interest. Always dressed in a pekin palliament, she pulled into her papyrotamia plant each day at the appointed time. Like a parison, Petula pressed and pleated the paper with pennaceous progression. It was during these times, Petula would proclaim her parables. One day, a pretty and petite girl interrupted, and pried about Petula's porphyrous pabouches. Petula pleasingly replied, "Pretty progeny, the pellicule that protects my paws is not just for physiognomy. I wear the pabouches to protect your pert proboscis from my podobromhydrosis."

Because this would normally be my Back2Basics post,
I give you this basic to prevent podobromhydrosis...Baking Soda!

Fill an old sock with Baking Soda and Baby Powder,
and place it in your shoes.
The soda and powder will absorb
the nasty smells and leave a pleasing scent.

What is your remedy for stinky feet?

Happy Tuesday!
