We met on a Sunday

Mother took me to a garden party somewhere off Mulholland once. I was eleven and left alone on a polished lawn full of platinum blondes in pastel colored cocktail dresses and their copycat daughters (no boys). Sort of like a barnyard with a better smell.

One of them wouldn't shut up about the newly opened American H&M stores, as if it was a major fashion happening. "Look" she said, flashing an ill-fitting jacket made of something close to burlap. "It looks like Chanel but is twenty times cheaper". Everyone gathered around her like a flock of hens except for one girl who snuck up behind her like a 4"6' Audrey Hepburn style ninja and pushed her into the swimming pool.

Someone told me that girl's name was Chloe. I talked to her. We've been at war with the world ever since.

  2. how sometimes we meet strangers who later in life become such an important part of our life. No wonder, that was a sunday to remember.

  30. You have such an interesting way of telling a story, very engaging and beautiful. I've always wanted to go to Mullholland Drive, probably because of the film, but I guess also because it seems to remind me of Valley of the Dolls x
