Tripping Along The Ledge

Anne Marie Mularkey. The gorgeous Anne Marie… Jaysus, now you’re taking me back. Swanned into French one day like she was God’s gift. Threw her schoolbag on an empty table and plonked down on a chair. Anne Marie was tall and elegant, with the saddest brown eyes I’d ever seen. She had a face like a shovel, of course, but that only added to her allure. Girl blew that fringe out from her eyes and swung back in the chair. And, with that, I fell in love.

    “She had a face like a shovel of course but that only added to her allure” – favourite line ever!!

    No, Michael found it in a lost property box where it had been lying for years… or something. Recollection hazy.

    But I remember it was so chosen to minimise possibility of anyone suing us. Then I went and (inadvertently) named her after a girl in my sister’s glass…

    She does bear a striking resemblance

    Poor girl, for the crime of losing a photo…

    That poor shovel faced girl…

  8. y-dog Says:

    michael wrote a pull quote – “like a ferret trying to escape from a ball of sticky putty”– and I found the photo. Those were the two staple elements that had to be used in the piece by different writers over a year. just so you know, like.

  9. Eoin Says:

    But didn’t you find it in a lost property box or something…? Or am I totally off the mark there?
