Guilty Pleasures

USING the spare key I was given in case of emergencies, I let myself into Tetra's apartment.

As there was no answer to my rap on her apartment window I figured she was busy with the baby.

She was busy alright but it wasn't with the baby - as it turned out she was busy with her guilty pleasure.

I could hear the almost humming/whirring noise before I even got to open the apartment's front door.

As I approached the closed living door the humming noise became even louder.

Tentatively I called her name and even rapped her living room door before slowly opening it.

And there she was, oblivious to anything else other than her new toy.

When she realised I had walked in on her all she could say through red-blustering cheeks was 'oh Ginger you've discovered my guilty pleasure'.

According to Tetra every woman should have one.

I don't know if one would work in my place - not with being a first floor flat - the people downstairs hear everything.

I am paranoid enough as it is using my footspa which not only confounds the dog who hasn't a clue what is going on let alone the mad vibrations on the floor which must be massively amplified downstairs.

But according to Tetra it is such a relief for her, she gets rid of so much frustration with it.

I'm not convinced, I have my own methods and it doesn't involve the use of a machine.

But Tetra is resolute - every woman over 35 must get one - it compliments her lifestyle and enhances her life, she says.

"It's the business and cost only €16 - I can't believe it - it is brilliant. I wanted one for ages and it is the best thing I have ever bought. I am telling you Ginger every girl should have one."

And what is this woman wonder? Why it is a paper shredder. What did you think I was talking about?

LMAO! I love my paper shredder and I agree every woman should have one. And probably the other thing too!

the other thing ? nothing else entered my uncorrupt mind except of course, a paper shredder - by the way tesco's do a mean one for €14.99 - only use it too much and you'll end up looking for things to shred - its addictive
