A NIGHT OF PORN AND CREAM.

It's very late on Tuesday night and I'm sitting at my round kitchen table trying to read what I have written though tears of laughter. My two friends S & M are sitting at the table in stitches as well. We each have a large balloon glass full of red wine in front of us. We're attempting to write a flashback within the mystery short film script we're working on but it's fast beginning to seem that we'd be better suited to writing hardcore pornography as some sentences seem to come to us far easier than others.

Suddenly, my friend M produces from the depths of her handbag something that is rarer than gold these days. I have to blink a couple of times to make sure that I'm seeing what I think I 'm seeing.



I catch my breath......is it?
No.......
It cant be.......

IT BLOODY WELL IS.

M has somehow managed to obtain a bottle of Horizon Recommended BOOTS NO 7 PROTECT AND PERFECT €23 EURO in the Blanchardstown Branch of Boots. The only scientifically proven wrinkle reducing cream that works and cheap at that.

"Only one per customer, you know. There's a waiting list of thousands in the UK.....AND the sales assistant gave me €5 too much in my change." She informs us.

"Why didn't you go back and get another bloody bottle for Christsakes" asks S incredulously.

I offer M another glass of wine in the hope that her reactions will slow down enough so she won't notice me pinching her precious Protect and Perfect.......... but she declines and never lets her handbag out of her sight for the rest of the night.
DAMMIT.
