THE FRIENDSHIP TRAP ... Book ONE

When the BoobRats are hot, they’re really hot! And they’re pumping today! Out in the playground, bumcheeks bouncing, they mince along, with Kellie Francisco leading the pack – as always.

She’s the hottest chick in the BoobRat pack. All the others ape her style. She’s tied the ends of her regulation school shirt into a knot so that ten centimetres of brown belly show between the shirt and her pants.

And those pants! Some kind of leggings or trakkie daks, I think. You know the kind, made from some stretchy stuff. But they aren’t part of any uniform I’ve ever seen in the catalogue.

If they were any tighter, they’d have split right up her bum as soon as she sat down in the school bus this morning.

BOOK TWO – RECIPE FOR TROUBLE

I wake to the smell of ginger and garlic and the sizzle of oil. Mmm …breakfast. I turn my head towards the kitchen sounds. Oww! Ohhh! My head. I try to sit up, to put my head in my hands. No go.

And my bed seems to be rocking up and back, up and back, making me feel dizzy and sick.

Where am I? And how did I get here? My head starts throbbing and my eyes ache, so I close them against the bright sunlight creeping through a crack in the timber wall.

I hear the sound of bare feet slapping on the timber floor. Then a shadow stands over me. It’s a woman, with an oversized T-shirt over her rolled up pants. She smiles at me, showing big gaps in her teeth.

You wan’ blekfas?’ she asks.

STIFF AS A BOARD                         Published 2015 CUSTOM BOOKS Noveletta imprint

STIFF AS A BOARD

Just then, dad came rushing out of his office.  ‘Jane, I need some help in the embalming room.  Give me a hand.’

You’re probably wondering what my dad is talking about.  Why on earth would an ordinary family have an embalming room?  Is my dad some kind of sicko freak? Or does he practice ancient rituals on family members? 

Well, you’d be wrong on both counts. 

My dad runs the family funeral business.  Our family has been dealing in death for the past fifty years.  We live above the funeral parlour.

It’s a great place to live,  but none of my mates want to hang out at my place. They seem spooked by the idea of hanging out in my bedroom when there are dead bodies in the fridge on the floor below.

No … not in our family fridge, of course.  The bodies are in the refrigerated cabinet next to the autopsy lab, each one in separate drawers.  They’re refrigerated to help preserve them until they can be embalmed for viewing by the family of the person who has passed away. Passed away’ is the polite way of saying ‘died’…

A unique and humourous look at death and afterwards!
