Three days to go
Three days to go.
I get them all round. Friends since I-don’t-know-when. We order pizza, paint our toenails violent red, sing along to Nina Simone.
First bottle of wine, they tell me how happy I look. I pick at a slice of pepperoni; try not to grin too smugly.
Second bottle, we’re poring over photos of boyfriends-past, hooting with laughter.
Sixth bottle, suddenly they round on me. Snap the music off.
‘Actually, we wanted to talk to you. Jess…are you certain he’s the right one for you?’
Pepperoni lodges in my throat and the room spins.
Three days to go.

Thanks for spotting that Neil – now changed!
I would think six bottles of wine would be a bit too much to expect a rational conversation from anyone. Yikes. I’d probably be asleep.
ha ha ha James, it depends on your tolerance level!! Also, on how many excitable girls the bottles are being shared amongst…
Bachelorette party I presume? Sounds about right. Hopefully, after her hangover clears she’ll be ready to walk down the aisle. Well done.
Yes indeed, bachelorette party. Or, as it’s known in the UK – hen party! She MAY be ready to walk down the aisle in three days…or her friends may have given her somethign very real to think about!
Well, it’s good that her friends have her back. On the other hand, he might be a nice guy…
Thank you for commenting Iain! I know, poor guy doesn’t get to show his side of the story in this…not enough words!!
eek! I hope she makes it down the aisle….
Ha ha, I actually have a hunch she may not Bettina 😉
Yes, when the wine starts flowing, the filters come off. I wonder if her friends will derail her walk down the aisle.
Thanks for commenting Amie…yes I think she may have some very difficult decisions to make!! 😉
Oh now… if she didn’t have cold feet before her hen party…
Hopefully she is secure in her choice, otherwise…
Thanks for commenting Dale. Yes, it definitely is quite a big ‘otherwise’….
