I was thinking today if my novel gets turned into a movie, I want Rebel Wilson to play the part of Monique.
This was a random thought, but I liked her in Bridesmaids and a show she was in many years ago on SBS.
I would like to produce my film, but I have no idea where or how to start. I think I would like to play the part of Sam, since she is based partly on myself.
Just Saturday nights: First paragraph.
The first time I saw Mark, my legs felt like jelly. I was too embarrassed to talk to him for the first few days. I mainly hid in the photocopy room, which is where I had a panic attack.
‘Just sit down, close your eyes and take a deep breath,’ Monique said.
‘I hope you realise, I remember what happened last time you said that,’ I said, ‘My hair still hasn’t fully grown back yet.’
While I sat breathing poisonous toner fumes, he walked in. The room became quiet, so I opened my eyes. I was surprised to see Mark sitting next to me.
He asked if I was alright. I couldn’t talk so I just nodded. He was kind and gave me a plastic cup of cold water. When our fingers touched, I felt a spark. I looked into his eyes and that was the first time I noticed how blue they are. I think that’s also the moment I fell in love with him.
Monique and I shared looks as he did his copying then left.
‘Who the bloody ‘ell was that?’ Monique said.
‘I don’t know but he was really nice.’
‘Mon, I think he’s our boss. ‘
‘So what, he’s still rootable.’
