After a particularly heavy week of work after a particularly heavy weekend last week, a local city worker has made time to catch up with an old friend who’s largely unsuccessful – in order to put her doubts about her own life at ease.

Louise Pichot knew on Wednesday night that she’d need a bit of a lift before Saturday so, in order to get it, she organised to see Olive Spearman.

Olive and Lou went to school together and used to be much closer but life commitments and work have seen them drift further apart.

However, they make time every now and then to see each other and catch up.

Lou spoke to The Advocate ahead of the planned meet up at a popular small bar in the French Quarter tonight.

“I had a big weekend on the gear last weekend. Like vomiting in front of people and completely losing my mind. Don’t know what came over me,” said Lou.

“Needless to say, the first few days of the week were especially tough. I never wanted to be a lawyer but here I am, a fucking lawyer at a giant firm surrounded by people who love playing corporate touch. What the fuck am I doing with my life?”

“Fuck! Why am I thinking like that? It’s a great job. I need to see Olive soon. She’s still living at home. Dropped out of uni and works at a cafe. I need to see what rock bottom looks like for me.”

More to come.
