This is an actual conversation that I over heard between two young girls on a very bus last Saturday. I’m still not the better of it…
Are you still with Cory?
D’ye love him?
Yeah, I suppose, whatever love is. Did you love him when you were with him?
Yeah, I mean, he’s really good looking, and he’s minted. Not that I knew he was minted when I was with him, like, that’s not why I was with him.
I knew he was minted, but that’s not why I’m with him.
He’s gorgeous, isn’t he?But I don’t like the way he knows he’s gorgeous, and he knows all the girls are mad for him.
I’ll probably lose me virginity to him. did you?
I did in me hole. Are you really going to?
I probably will, like, I don’t really want to but we’re in a stable relationship so, yeah.
How long are you with him?
Three weeks. He thinks he’s me best friend, I told him he was,but he’s not
You just have to tell them what they want to hear, don’t you?
Yeah, I mean, Jade will always be me best friend.
Oh what? Did you think you were?
Anyway, we’ll probably do it soon. He really wants to.
Well if you don’t, someone else will, because he really is gorgeous.
Yeah, and like, his gaff is huge, like the length of three houses and three stories high.
It must be massive.
It is, and he even has a trampoline out his back garden.
Did you lose your virginity yet?
Shut up, the whole bus can hear you.
Let them, so tell us, did you lose it? Are you still single?
Yeah I’m still single.
How long are you single now?
About six months.
And still a virgin.
Shurrup, so are you.
Not for much longer.
Are you dying to lose your virginity?
Shhhh, I’m scarlet. (I think we already know the answer love)
Come on then, this is our stop.
Well, when they stood up and walked down the bus, I couldn’t believe my eyes. They were only about thirteen or fourteen years of age. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I feel sorry for kids today. They don’t get to be kids for long do they? When I was their age, I was still reading Enid Blyton books and playing skipping out on the road with me pals. The only thing I ever lost was me bus fare.
