A Plague on your House, Friends Reunited
'Tony C has left you a message on Friends Reunited'
And with those few words, my very first boyfriend is catapulted back into my conscience after over 30 years.
Not ' the love of my life' sort of first boyfriend, more 'the mistake we all make when we are young and hormonal'.
Shall I/Shan't I?
Of course I shall, just to satisfy my morbid curiosity.
Don't know if its the write person but it's me, Tony
Ah, good to see you got the hang of that ole spelling thing.
What do people expect of you after you haven't so much as heard their name mentioned in over 30 years?
Hey, how are you? Married/Single? Children/Not?
Maybe we could reminisce about...
'The Time You Had My Name Tattooed on Your Arm' - and spelled it wrong!
I can still remember the total horror that someone had had my name tatooed onto their arm for ever. I remember you eventually changed it to 'Mother' although it never looked that good. What does it say now? How did you explain it away? And how the hell could you NOT know how my to spell my name!
'The Time I dumped you at the Smokie concert and you put your fist through a shopwindow and arrived home covered in blood so your poor mother thought you'd done away with me'
That was a really memorable occasion. My poor father had worn a hole in the pavement by the time the concert finished - and was less than impressed to see his lovestruck daughter appear on the arm of her new beau. That said, he was infinitely preferable to the one he replaced.
or maybe even
'The time you ran into myself and new boyfriend in Weekes and threatened to kill him. We had to call the police to escort us out safely'
Yep, that was a good one too! The less said about that day, the better.
Ah, memories, memories....
I couldn't even remember who you were when I saw the message, in fact I thought it was someone from my primary school.
So, will I contact you?
Not in a million years!
