How to talk to girls...

I loved Neil Gaimain's Hugo nominated story, How to Talk to Girls At Parties and am pleased to find it up on the web, along with some of the other nominees.

And my writing prompt is: Talking to boys

Great blog by the way.

Talking to boys...
I did this in " flippant fashion" ( I quote the ridiculous Headmistress of my school who said: " A sensible girl's ambition is to be The Wife Of A Good Man...University/college just passes time for a while")
We talked ( me, my friends and The Boys, some of whom I'm STILL talking to ( with) nowadays...in the cathedral cloisters after school, my panama hat artfully arranged askew on my head and my blue bobble-checked poplin dress exactly the right length for The Time )
This wild (?) conduct got me several detentions including hemming serviettes for the school visitor's diningroom, designing pretty borders for school concert programmes and writing out the 1st chapter of " Approach to Latin" in italics....
