  Hi, I am Elizabeth Sharp I was a beautiful girl with blondish red hair that touched just past my shoulders and blue eyes. Everyone wanted to know my secret to great hair. But, of course a girl never revels her secrets. I was a sweet, fun, outgoing, and full off oomph, and was the type of girl everyone wanted as a friend. Plus I had a lot of other secrets no one but my closest friend knew about.

I had a lot going for myself, 21 years old, a handsome boyfriend named Gary, and also had lots of friends. A great job working at a hair salon that catered to celbs and the local snobs. Who didn't mind forking out $250 dollars for a hair cut?
My job was to make sure everyone in the salon was happy even if it meant being treated like trash. They were training me to be a celb hair stylist. Until, one day I said "FUCK OFF" I had enough. I could no longer handle the pre Madonna attitude and all the melodrama.

So it goes without saying I ended up quitting. Not only did I quit my job, but I walked out on everything and everyone. The handsome boyfriend was fooling around with some hussy. These friends weren't really interested in me, but just wanted to gossip or get a glimpse at my life. Guess talking to me they would feel better about their life. That is when I found out they were not really friends, they treated me like shit. These so called friends of mine always tried to control my life, shooting down my dreams and they would tell me that all my plans would fail.

So as you would guess I had a nervous break down, started drinking and even started sleeping around with anything that had a DICK. Just when I thought my life couldn’t get anymore interesting that was when Peril introduced me to John. Yep, this is just what I need right now another guy! Think I will have some fun with this one!

I'm curious about where you are going with this.

If there was a point, other than typing a few 4 letter words, I missed it as well.

Pre Madonna is a pretty good malaprop; should be primadonna.
