Frances: I am an ARTISTE, not someone who is capable of “making friends”.

On why she shouldn’t have to go to her social group (which she did, in fact, attend — her cultural status and sensibilities notwithstanding.)

Nice try, tho’.


Keeping it real

Frances: Mummy, do you know what I want for my birthday?

Me: What do you want for your birthday?

Her: Cold. Hard. Cash.
