Mary is a busy body. She does not realise it but she lives her life vicariously through other people. Mary has managed to alienate people all her life with her intrusive manner. Mary has a Mary opinion about anything.
Mary loves flowers.
She lives in a single fronted weatherboard house. Her pride and joy is her English style cottage garden, of lavender, several varieties of roses, azaleas and pansies. Her two bedroom house is lined with floral wallpaper. There are vases of flowers in every room. On her kitchen ledge, she has pots of African violets; pink and purple.
Mary makes rose soap and lavender oil. Her bathroom has a floral bowl filled with fresh potpourri.
Mary loves to cook. She often gives rose petal jam to her neighbours.
The windows in her house are covered with peach curtains; they are open during the day, in the evening they are closed with a two inch gap. Mary knows all the comings and goings, she watches her neighbours. Often clucking her tongue and shaking her disapproving head.
Mary wears pink, purple, yellow and green. She dislikes red and black.
Her wardrobe is full of floral blouses; she owns twenty pairs of floral tights that she coordinates under pleated skirts.
She only shops at the Flower Flounce Boutique.
Everyday is a dressing scented treat for Mary. She completes every outfit with a floral headband.
Mary works at the National Bank as a Senior Teller. She loves to talk and seems to know everyone’s business, including new customers. Mary has a crush on Reginald, her cheeks blossom when he walks in. Everyone in the office knows. She does not shut up; Reginald this, Reginald that.
Mary only speaks to Lucy when absolutely necessary. As far as Mary is concerned, Lucy is nuisance cleaner with bad taste in clothing.
Until the day Lucy asked Reginald out. Now Lucy is a nemesis.
Mary plots to undermine and win Reginald for herself.
