Guest Speaker!


Char & Gertie: Alright ladies! Get excited! Our first guest speaker is joining us this evening. Periodically we will invite fellow spinsters to voice their frustrations and joys on our blog. (If any of you would ever like to join in, that’s what the comment box is for.) Tonight we are blessed to have with us, Prudence, aka Prude. Not to be confused with stuck up or wearing tight pantyhose. She is a gem. Welcome Prude. What would you like to share with us tonight?

Prude: Well Char and Gertie, while reflecting on my extreme spinster status, I decided to do what any lonely girl would do and call the mother. As I ranted and raved about my pathetic life...

Gertie: Char, pass the tissues....

Prude: No, wait. No tissues necessary. As I was saying, while I was ranting, I had an epiphany. I am happy. And I am single. And they do indeed mix. I said to my mother, “You know what? I take everything I just said back. I will not apologize for wanting to sing at a karaoke bar on my 21st birthday rather than giving birth to my second child like most of my correspondences.

Char: YOU GO GIRL!

Prude: We need not wallow in the singleness of spinsterhood. We need to take pride in our ambitions, even if they do include belting “All the Singles Ladies” on your birthday. And yes…you should have put a ring on it.

Gertie: Wow. Thanks Prude. We’d love to have you back.

Char: Truly, a leader for our future generation of spinsters.
