May 20: Three people walk into a bar…

Three people walk into a bar.

They have not been out for a long time together and they are going to talk and talk and talk and talk. 

They do not care what music is playing, they do not care who else is at the bar nor do they care if this is the latest place to be seen.

They want to be in a place where they will not be interrupted, they want excellent service, great drinks and fabulous foods. They want wait staff that know what they need and to deliver it in a timely fashion.
They are of course, three women who have fled the usual evening of dishes, readers, teeth brushing and bed times.

They have escaped the day time uniform of jeans and a top with sensible shoes. They might have applied a favourite lipstick and an extra squirt of perfume. After talking non stop and barely acknowledging anything else in their surroundings they will have solved the big issues of their lives, possibly cried together over something they can not fix, shared some secrets about their kids (the good and the bad and the bits they think they are failing at). They will laugh at that one time when... and they will laugh and laugh and laugh some more until everything is right in the world.

They will wrap up the night with the promise that next time must be soon, that they really shouldn't wait so long to do this again.

But they will.

Then months later, three people will walk into a bar....and it will all be the same.

True girlfriends are priceless in life, those you rarely catch up with can sometimes be the bestest ever. 

You all know who you are.


  1. I wish I had some special girlfriends to do this with - a downside of moving countries and being so shy !!! Have a great day !

  2. Sweet.. it doesn't matter the distance or time, true friends will be there for each other always :)

  7. I have two special girls friends from school but we never did the bar scene...we go out to just to eat and chatter.

  8. Great prompt - so many ways to go. Love yours. Special night with special friends.

  9. This is a lovely description of true friendship. I really like these writing prompts too, just wish I had time to write every day. It really takes commitment! Well done.
