LJ HOLMES PRESENTS: CHAMPAGNE AFTERNOON
On a frigging DARE!
I'm a busy adult, at least I am over the age society considers an adult...so how did I end up here, bubbling like Champagne,
in the very last place a respectable woman is supposed to be hanging her...okay I can't say
hat, because I haven't got a hat...and truth be told, I haven't, thanks to that damned dare, got much else either?
I'm honest, to a fault, and the image reflecting from the

you know the one that says we're over the hill when we hit it.
Yep, that one...thirty.

champagne bubbles make her want to swirl down the drain and disappear forever where it is drained champagne goes?
