Subject: Party Invitation. Dom and Elsa’s – Sat’ 7:30
Hello All, sorry about the global.
Elsa and I are having an impromptu party on Saturday night. It's more of a celebration for Elsa than me as she is a way better person than I am.
Please feel free to debate:
Anyay – the address: 4/15 Albert Street West End – 7:30.
It's a fancy dress party.
The theme: Come as yourself.
And in case you’re not sure who that is we’ll have some cocktails waiting for you on arrival to help.
Apart from that please bring your own bottle, bag of jellied fruits and a secret that you’re willing to share to a small group of people for social buoyancy reasons.
Of couuse the latter is optional but if you embrace the suggestion you will certainly elevate the discussion beyond shared entertainment and take it to a place of a communual gossip.
Coz aint that what it’s all about, folks?
A little chatter stops us fearing death, right!!??
See you then.
PS Not sure if I should have mentioned the word ‘death’ in an invite for a piss-up excuse for a party.
Please don’t let it get you down.
And in a weak attempt to rectify that odd detour in tone I offer this triviality from my own life for you to ponder, be amused, dismissed and distracted:
Sometimes I pretend to be blind to get attention.
