True Story # 1 –
Late one frosty[ish] Monday afternoon a slightly intoxicated Katiefinger waved goodbye to The Gip Girls following a long liquid lunch in a seedy pub and off she toddled to the bus station. As she drew near she decided that it would be lovely if she popped into the Bag Shop to see her Old-Young Friend [and ex-Assistant Manager when she worked in the retail trade].
And yes, she had an ulterior motive. Wouldn’t it be lovely to buy a new bag as a Christmas gift to herself to add to the collection of bags gathering dust under the bed/in the cupboard?
As she approached the Bag Shop she spied many bright lights. Odd. It’d never been that bright before.
Not only were there bright lights but there were shoppers sitting enjoying a chat and a drink. They were laughing. Laughing in a Bag Shop?
Lots of coffee though.
Pah … Starbuck’s have stolen Katiefinger’s Old-Young Friend [and ex-Assistant Manager when she worked in the retail trade].
And Katiefinger may never ever see her again.
True Story # 2 –
Katiefinger has a friend. She hasn’t had this friend for long [about two years]. Her name shall be Doll. Doll has been with her man for about sixteen years. They have three beautiful and intelligent children. They go and see Bruce Springsteen together … Katiefinger doesn’t know why. Maybe they like him. She makes Katiefinger giggle. She’s a breath of fresh air. She’s fab. [please note that Katiefinger only says this in case Doll chooses to read this entry … must suck up to her!] … And now she’s tying the knot. Hurrah! She deserves it.
Thankfully she’s only got about seven or eight weeks to plan the wedding. No time to get stressed. Plenty of time to organise a stripper for her Hen Night though …
