Hey I saw Elsa today…it was really weird…as you know I’ve been getting up early more often…and not just to walk your dog…though this morning Oftenbark was with me…cute as ever...heeling and tail wagging…
Anyway…there we where walking through the Valley again…
Not sure why but I like walking Oftenbark through the valley…I think it’s cause I love the junkies stroking him…
junkies love dogs…
and he also protects me against the hippy craft folk in their cheap oil cubicles at the morning fair…but I confess as much as I hate them…I still look…I still pick up the odd crystal…I still try on the stupid felt hat…I still smell the leather and contemplate buying that TinTin T-Shirt for you…
But I don’t buy anything… trust me…the money stays in my pocket…which is needed…for without it I’d never be able to buy that coffee or cooked (wrote cocked for a second – watch it, mister) breakfast at the Cosmo Cafe…
And Dominique loves the Cosmo…
Do you remember her? She was at my birthday…the pretty gay one…you liked her…you said she was sexy in a gay way…and it wasn’t because you couldn’t have her…or that she had your name…you genuinely thought she was cute and lamented her choice…again, you stressed…not that you’d go there…and if anything you thought…she was going to make some chick very happy one day…
Anyway…there we were, Dominique, me and the dog…we were sharing a big breakfast because we’re girly girls…though Dominique always takes more than her fair share of bacon…lezzo thief…
And as we were eating, I saw Elsa out the corner of my eye…she was at the markets buying some honey, some tatty home made musical instrument and second hand CDs…I swear I saw she had a Genesis CD…
I nudged Dominique…
“See her…that’s Elsa…Dom’s ex.”
Dominique’s eyes narrowed as she took her second sausage…
“I know her.” She said.
“Yes, she dances…maybe you saw her on stage…”
“No, I know-know her.” She said.
It was my turn to narrow my eyes…I took the sausage off her and had a bite…
“You mean know-know?” I asked.
Dominique nodded…and admitted they’d had an affair a year ago when she was doing her design course at Queensland University of Technology.
“She posed for me and later we had dinner…it was nice…she’s a good kisser…”
“But didn’t you recognize her at my birthday dinner?”
“Of course.”Dominique replied, “But I wasn’t going to say anything then. She was with Dom. It was your birthday. It didn’t feel apt.”
“But later, come on! You could have told me later.”
“For what reason?”
“Good gossip.” I replied being a tad selfish.
“Look, Stace’ to be honest…I forgot…I was in love…remember…(not that that worked out)…and it slipped my mind…it’s only now that I remember…just one of those things, I guess…”
I nodded and turned to see Elsa one more time…she was alone and had made it to the plants…she was looking at a cactus…
Dominique at this point turned her look away and stole a piece of bacon from my plate…Oftenbark remained dozing at my feet…either too bored too look or too mean to say Hi…
I think it was the latter…
Miss you, honey…
