— Girl, why do you keep chasin’ after that man like a lost puppy who thinks it’s found its owner? If he wanted you, he woulda at LEAST noticed you by now.
— Girlfriend, who do you think you foolin’? All those love letters you keep writing….and NEVER sending. *snickers* Lord KNOWS desperation wasn’t a trait He crafted in the First Man…OR Woman.
— Girl, you keep singin’ the same sad song while your tall, fine, Black knight just walks on by, tone deaf and icy.
— Girlfriend, did you forget? WOMEN can be thirsty too, and you’re lookin’ QUENCHED!
— Girl, um…are you LISTENIN’ to us? You got that silly look on your face again–you know, the one that tells us you AIN’T listenin’.
–Aw, come on, girlfriend. You KNOW we love you and we only got your best interests at heart. That means US telling YOU that HE is NOT interested in YOUR heart.
(they burst out into raucous cackles)
–Yeah, girl! We’re trying to SAVE you from yourself! You don’t need another embarrassment to add to your love life experience. Remember the LAST TIME???
–Girlfriend, look…somebody that fine probably already GOT somebody. Wake up!
–Girl, let’s forget about him. We’ve got some red wine and rocky road–let’s get it!
–Girlfriend, we DEFINITELY needed to have this talk. Now I feel so much better since we’ve talked you back into your senses. Pass me that bottle real quick….
–Girl, I’ll grab the bowls and spoons…!
But SHE never got the chance to utter a single word.
