She wiggled her toes and wondered for the 3rd time if the lime-green looked better……or the hot-pink. The lime-green matched her tee and the hot-pink matched her shorts. Oooooooohh these choices! Instead of re-applying the colour on her nails, she took a swig of her drink. By the end of the night if she couldnt make up her mind on her own, she knew the rum would do it for her.

She slid herself further down the chair while she slid the thought away from her head. It kept coming back but she knew she wasnt ready to deal with it just yet. She increased the volume on her stereo and a strong male voice filled up the backyard. He sang about the wonderful effects of alcohol. She sat there grinning through his lyrics. Of course, the adverse effect of the song was that it brought the thought back to her head. She slapped her palm on her forehead. What were you thinking? Although thats a stupid question – you were NOT thinking! She gulped her drink down to fight the feeling that was creeping up on her. Its funny…..this is what got you into trouble and you are still sipping it for courage!

The track on the stereo changed. She let out a laugh! It was a lady now tempting her to sway. She looked up at the sky and mouthed some words at the Mother-of-all-creation. Really! really! At times like these You make me think You are a man!!

She did then what she should have done earlier…..much much earlier. She picked up the two items lying on the floor next to her chair. Walking up to the cupboard in the house, she stared down at them. You both are responsible for this …….. this ….embarrassment! She knew that accusing these items would not work, she had to do what she had to do! She opened the cupboard and threw the phone from her right hand into it. She swiftly locked the cupboard and stepped back. Her left hand rose ……lifting the bottle to her lips…… well, she had made her choice.

She walked by to the backyard.
