Dear Jeremy,

I wanted to talk about Sapphire. The stripper you slept with last Easter when I went home for my mother’s funeral.

You were right. Sapphire is much better with her mouth.

  1. I love this. A “Dear John” letter of sorts, delivered like a kick in the teeth. Great little piece of writing!

      • oh no its just a slang that seems to be used a lot on the newspapers and those random free magazines in the comedy sections and stuff 🙂

    • Lovely that you think so. I was rather chuffed with this one, especially since my writing took a turn for the lovey-dovey a few months back. (New relationship)
      Still very happily involved but love has stopped throwing itself into my writing as much.

      • I don’t mind the lovey-dovey stuff from time to time :). Having a partner can be great inspiration in writing.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
