When they were young, wild and unencumbered with husbands and kids, these girls could party. They worked in the same office and at 5:05 pm, most nights, they were perched on barstools in the sports bar next door. A few cocktails and a bites of free appetizers was all they needed.
After a wild ride with the start up, the firm closed in the night and disappeared. Cicley, in Accounting was aware things were going awry and gave her friends a heads-up. They had all started looking for jobs and were hired, enmasse, by a competitor.
One by one, the girls met boys and fell in love and were married. Motherhood slowed down the partying and the cocktail parties. For a couple of years. The friends decided they needed a monthly party night and they have been laughing and quaffing for thirty two years.
