    Default A passage

    Keeping in mind that your beautiful girlfriend - what's her name? oh, I know, Bridget - has enough money to buy half of North America, I am pretty sure she also has enough to lend you these couple of bugs you need to... give me back. Doesn't she? Tell me, doesn't she? You know, after all these years of our friendship I do think you should give them back. Not too much for you, or her, but a lot for me. You seem to behave as though she had been your friend for many a year and I had been your girlfriend for two weeks. Well, I am not. A girl, first of all, I am not.

    Waiting for any comments,
    Thanks,
    Nyggus

    Neat writing.

    Query - what do you mean by "a couple of bugs"?

    The last sentence is a bit obscure: "A girl I am not" / "Above all a girl I am not" / "After all, I am not a mere girl" - these are all possible interpretations.

    Hi Nyggus
    Did you mean "couple of bucks" (dollars)?

    Yes, of course, I meant bucks...
    But after all, who knows, maybe my friend could lend me a couple of bugs? First, I can be an insane entomologist who collects bugs from all possible sources. Second, maybe more likely, I may like to hear more than I'm able to, so bugs may be of help, if you know what I mean.

    Thanks, Anglika and Philly!
