Reunions

Post by sanshoe on Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:08 am

Jan, Sue and Mary haven't seen each other since Secondary College.

They rediscover each other via a reunion website and arrange to meet for lunch
in a wine bar.

Jan arrives first, wearing a beige Versace. She orders a bottle of Pinot Grigio.

Sue arrives shortly afterward, in grey Chanel. After the required ritualized
kisses she joins Jan in a glass of wine.

Then Mary walks in, wearing a faded old tee-shirt, blue jeans and boots. She too
shares the wine.

Jan explains that after leaving high school and graduating from the ANU in
classics, she met and married Timothy, with whom she has a beautiful daughter.

Timothy is a partner in one of Melbourne’s leading law firms. They live in a penthouse in South Yarra and Susanna, their daughter, attends drama
school. They have a second home in Noosa.

Sue relates that she graduated from
Melbourne University and became a surgeon. Her husband, Clive, is a leading Collins St. investment banker. They live in Brighton and have a second home in Palm Cove.

Mary explains that she left school at 17 and ran off with her boyfriend, Jim.
They run a tropical bird park on the Gold Coast and grow their own vegetables. Jim can stand five parrots, side by side, on his penis.

Halfway down the third bottle of wine and several hours later, Jan blurts out
that her husband is really a cashier at Safeway. They live in a small apartment
in Footscray and have a camper trailer parked at a nearby storage facility.

Sue, chastened and encouraged by her old friend's honesty, explains that she and Clive are both nurses' aides in a retirement home. They live in Pakenham and take camping trips to the Wilsons Promontory.
Mary admits that the fifth parrot has to stand on one leg.
