Happy New Year (bp coyle)


‘Hey mate. Please tell me you have found a new year’s eve party for us to go tonight.’


‘Damn! I knew it. We are going to end up sharing a dozen bottles of cider in the park like we have done every year since we were sixteen. Oh well, it could be worse I guess. I wasn’t seriously expecting anything different.’

‘Eh… Do you remember that girl from the club a couple of weeks ago? The pretty girl with the really big…’

‘The one you gave your number to?’

‘Yeah, her. Well, she phoned me this morning and invited me to a thing at her place tonight.’

‘Oh wow. That’s great. Finally we have an honest to God party to start a new year at. I can’t believe it.’

‘Okay. I don’t know how to tell you this…’

‘Oh my God! She just invited you. You’re going to desert me on tonight of all nights.’

‘I really tried.’

‘We’ve spent every new year together since high school.’

‘I’m sorry, I’ll make it up to you I promise. Listen, it’s getting late. I’ve got to start getting ready. Happy new year!’

‘Thanks mate. Same to you.’
