Let's Drink To The Good Old Days…

Updated: Jan 9


….before lockdown when folk visited, drained your cupboard of booze and still didn’t leave.

“I have come to the conclusion I am a mere list woman…” says Mavis “…with ticks.” 


She sniggers at her wit.


I ignore her. 


Mavis is on her third processco and will be singing in a minute or worse, blaming “Trump’s hair” for the downfall of mankind”.


I watch her empty her glass.


“Yeah that’s me, a funny woman with profound, “yeah I’ve be been there” stories.” She pours another.


I start to clear a few plates, fluff a few cushions.


“Churning out novels while getting the car service ain’t no picnic; neither is trying to be vegan when you love butter.”


I talk of bedtime, switch off the TV, I even take my bra off and sling it in her face. Does she move? 

Not even a blink. 


“My life is just one long witty conversation with people I hardly know,” she hiccuped “for hilarious blogs…”


There is no answer to that.


“But success eludes me, like my daughter.”
