I started with a cool 2 billion.
I was a ‘high roller’.
I lost 11,000 a month.
I laid them out like bargaining chips for love.
A Dr. told me I’d been a fool then asked for more of them:
‘I’ll take 300 for 10 grand’.
But even she couldn’t give me any guarantees.
As a 37 year old woman I’m learning there is a price you pay for love.
I went to do the maths in fact and found myself dropping cartons at Coles with every zero that racked up on my phone.
The store cleaner looked at all the shells, yolk and white around me.
‘You’ll have to pay for those’ they said.
‘I already have’ I replied.
‘I started with a cool 2 billion’.
