Backstabbing for beginners

March 25, 2013

The food was excellent and the conversation flowed with the Champagne.

  1. Ah, so dissapointing when one gets those words. Lovely and inventive title, by the way.

      Never mind, I suspect the poor girl’s better off without Gerard anyway. Glad you liked it, and the title.

  3. *disappointing. I always spell this word incorrectly!
