Franka continues the game by choosing another gift to replace the one Dania took.
Franka: “Largest gift in the lot. Let’s see what’s inside?”
Franka: “Oh my this is from Patois. So soft.”
Franka: “There is a lovely beach bag…”
Franka: “…a pair of groovy sunglasses. These are really cute.”
Franka: “…And a beach hoodie. I love it!”
Zola: “Why don’t you model it all for us?” Franka: “That’s a good idea.”
So she proceeds to display the gifts with a brief modeling moment.
[APPLAUSE] Zola: “Lovely, lovely!! We should put you on the catwalk next show!”
Franka returns to her seat and then it’s Ashante’s turn at the gift exchange game.
Bianca: “Lovely setting I thought.” Ashante: “Beautiful!” Persephone: “Exquisite!”
Reluctantly she holds up the necklace for everyone to see.
Franka: “It’s perfect for your complexion Ashante.” Ashante: “Franka I agree.”
Dania: “Don’t get too attached to those gifts Ashante. The game is not over.”
Ashante: “Thanks for the reminder Dania.”
Dania: “You three can stop giving me that look. I know perfectly well that the same applies to me.”
Without warning Zola bursts out in laughter.
Zola: “Ha ha ha ha ha!!!” Franka: “Zola?”
Zola: “Ha ha, so sorry, ha ha ha, I can’t contain myself!!!”
Zola: “My apologies, but it’s my turn and Dania, I want that bag.” Franka: “Ahh, that’s the reason for the spontaneous laughter. I love it!”
Dania: “Drats.” Cindy: “Oh dear.”
Dania: “No hair off my back. Take it.”
Franka: “He he he!!! Absolutely hilarious! He he he!!!”
But as a gift is taken it has to be replaced and as Dania cannot take the bag back from Zola, she goes for the next gift which has caught her eye.
Bianca thinking: “I knew it.” Dania: “Ashante, your gifts please. Let’s see how much longer Franka laughs at me now.”
Dania: “Come on come on. We don’t have all night.” Cindy: “Dania take it easy.”
Ashante: “I have no problem giving them to you Dania, but please check the attitude at the door.” Dania: “Oh please Ashante.”
The game proceeds and Ashante gets another gift.
Ashante: “Here we go again.”
Ashante: “Can this top the necklace and cashmere scarf?” Persephone: “Only way to know is by opening it.”
Bianca: :Ohhhhhhh… That is the best gift tonight!” Persephone: “That is a really nice gift.” Dania: “What is it?”
Bianca: “It’s a five night trip for two to St. Lucia Sandals.” Zola: “Perfect for you and Kevin.” Franka: “WOW!” Dania: “Hmm.” Cindy: “Nice.”
Ashante: “Actually it’s the perfect gift for Persephone.” Persephone: “What?”
Ashante: “It’s your turn next right?” Persephone: “Yes I have 7.” Ashante: “You need the perfect setting for Geffrey to propose finally.”
Bianca: “Oh my, that’s so nice of you Ashante.” Ashante: “Take it!” Persephone: “You sure?”
Persephone: “I was just going to take the last gift in the pile.” Ashante: “No I’ll take that. You take the trip.” Persephone: “Thanks so much Ashante. This may just be what Geffrey needs to finally pop the question.”
Ashante: “Cindy please pass me the last gift.”
Cindy: “No problem.”
Persephone: “If you don’t like it we can swap.” Ashante: “Nonsense.”
Ashante: “Oh yum yum yum. Parisian truffles!!”
Persephone: “Be honest, you don’t like them that much.” Ashante: “I adore these!”
Ashante: “Girl trust me, Kevin and I love these…” [wink, wink] Persephone: “Ohhhhhhhh…”
Zola: “So Cindy as you’re number one you have a choice to pick anything then the game ends.”
Cindy: “Ok I think I will give up this lovely tea set for the cashmere scarf and necklace.”
Dania: “Cindy, you’re joking right?”
Cindy: “No I am not. It’s time for your comeuppance.” Dania: “That’s how it is huh?” Cindy: “Yes it is.”
Ashante: “I love this game.” Persephone: “Me too.”
Zola: “Alright ladies, it’s time to eat.”
Zola: “I invite you all to partake in the buffet.” Cindy: “Great I’m famished.”
Dania: “No meat for me.” Zola: “Well try some tomato and basil spaghetti rolls.”
Zola: “Or some vegetable lasagna.” Dania: “I’ll take both.”
The ladies serve themselves food and spend the rest of the night catching up.
Thanks for visiting!
