Sex, Politics & Hotmail: a Tale of Two Women and their Push-up Bras

CHAPTER ONE

THE BET

New Message to: Olivia Harris-Finke on Facebook

You won.


New Message to: Rose O’Brady on Facebook

I beg your pardon?

Rose O’Brady

You mean you don’t remember?

Olivia Harris-Finke

No I’m afraid I don’t. But then I haven’t heard from you for ten years, Rose darling, so I’m probably slightly behind the eight ball.  (What is the eight ball, by the way?)

So what have I won, exactly?

Rose O’Brady

You won the bet.

Hey anyway you were the one who stopped answering my emails.  I thought maybe you moved or something.  But then I looked you up on Facebook last month and everything was just the same, so maybe it wasn’t that after all.

Olivia Harris-Finke

Of course I didn’t stop answering YOUR emails.  It was you who stopped answering mine.  I thought it was because your ISP had cut you off, or something of the sort.

Rose O’Brady

WTF?

Olivia Harris-Finke

Well you know how you’re always forgetting to pay bills.  I even wrote a letter, and you never answered that either!

WHAT BET?

Rose O’Brady

Well maybe we both just forgot.  Isn’t that supposed to happen when people get married and have kids?  Who needs friends when you’ve got a nuclear family!

Anyway let’s get off this frigging thing! Email me! purplerose@hotmail.com.

  1. As so often happens when I come here, I am confused but amused.

    • I guess that could be a good sign! Thank you! It’s a novel, I’m just putting it out there for the occasional comment. It’s a bit of a silly one really, but better an audience of 2 than 1! I’ll clean it up and make it clearer that’s what it is. Thanks again, White Lady!

  3. Make that an audience of at least 3! A bet from years gone by is a good plot device and I am another who wants to know what it was… 🙂

    • Well, thanks for that! Now I’m scared it’ll be a bit of a let-down (I bet you I could run all the way to the shops and back?). But I’d love some feedback, good and bad – so thanks.

  4. I am not sure if you do awards or if you already have enough, but you have inspired me so I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. 🙂 http://blessedwithastarontheforehead.wordpress.com/
