She’s the prettiest girl here, she’ll do. He’ll take her a drink, bitches love that, he thinks. If she takes it and chats, he’ll know she’s up for it: it’ll be her lucky night.
She says thanks for the drink and smiles. He tells how he’s got twelve girlies under him at work. She doesn’t laugh when he says women like being under him but she seems impressed he’s so rich.
He sees some scruffy geek smiling at her. Twat. He’s approaching. Not even bringing her a drink. Wait, she’s gone off with him. Some bitches, they got no sense.

    Haha! Great! He got his comeuppance! I know this guy... I think I was the twat who went off with the prettiest girl. (Still looking at her). Can’t wait to read the next ones Drew...

    Thanks Neville. I don't think I've ever stopped being in awe of arrogant people (partly because I quite admire it if it's toned down), but they've always disturbed me to some extent.

    They still do me. I simply don’t ‘get’ them. I’ve come up through the ranks of extreme shyness to my kind of arrogance, largely as a result of the jobs I’ve done, advertising and teaching and the many, many stupid things I’ve done and not only got away with, but thrived on!

    I don't think you have arrogance, Neville, not as far as I can see. Self-assurance and confidence, yes, but not arrogance.
    Perhaps some more drabbles about the stupid things you've done may be in order...?

    Thanks... and well why not? My real problem is remembering if I’ve told them before, but hey, if I can’t remember, who else will! But my school buddy who now lives in Pennsylvania is regularly in touch and has an extraordinary memory for granular detail of our young lives, so I can tap him for ideas. He’s a serious writer of highbrow academic texts, despite being a regular pisshead, but I send him the odd drabble link and I might even try to get him to join Drablr and share some of his own myriad anecdotes, which he tells so well.

    That would be great.
    Which reminds me of one of my English lecturers, whose name I can't remember atm, but she was a typical poetry loving ageing spinster who insisted that "Academia" should be renamed "Alcydemia". She loved her gin and white wine, never found if that was separate or together!

    I think together might help, then it lasts longer 🙂
