Alison and Christina
have been friends for what seems like ever, but is surprisingly still
not even half their lives.
Christina first liked Alison because she was designated as her "buddy"
when Christina joined her team at work. Alison helped her choose
her lunch (tuna mayonnaise baked potato with coleslaw, which they
both obediently ate together every day), and taught her COBOL and
liked Christina as she was just like Alison's favourite cat Feargal,
(small, round, grey, and very determined).
was cemented when they started co-producing jolly japes for office
outings and parties. Who can forget the "dress as someone else
in the office" fancy dress party, the Chepstow Treasure Hunt,
or the Girl Guides Christmas Gang Show. The highlight of these entertainments
was the little-publicised Olympic sport, synchronised knitting (pairs).
After this what could they do but be friends?
the town in Torremolinos and trying to catch the sunset on a very
windy evening at Dante's Peak.
still crazy after all these years.
