Frankly my dears, you should give a damn about this. A few of us here at Mamamia are fans of Gone With The Wind and when we stumbled across this little series of imaginary texts between Scarlett O’Hara and the other characters – we just had to share.
This is Scarlett and Ashley:
ashley r u there?
im drunk (from brandy)
remember that time we made out in the barn?
Scarlett, it’s four in the morning and I have to get up in two hours to run your mill
Please don’t text me this late
oh i sold the mill haha
did i not tell you that?
Oh my God.
did you know that pantalets are out this year
that’s why im not wearing any
OH MY GOD
Scarlett and Rhett (our personal favourite):
what r u doing?
Still in jail, I’m afraid
i want to go out and no one can go out
I’m sorry to have inconvenienced you, my dear
i am so so so bored
Bored, my dear? With a mind like yours?
That’s something even I can’t imagine.
is that a joke
I can assure you I am quite serious
ur making fun of me
this is exactly why ur not received
Scarlett and Melanie:
Darling, I was going through some old things this morning
and found Charles’ ornamental officer’s sash
I thought you’d like to have it
So I gave it to Mammy for cleaning and she’ll give it to you later
who is charles?
Scarlett, how you joke!
was he that guy…?
I know it pains you to speak of him — that’s why you act so high-spirited about it, and I think it’s simply marvelous of you. But you don’t have to be brave with me, Scarlett dear.
that guy with like the chin thing?
I miss him too.
guess what i turned my mourning gown into?
But I know he’s looking after us — always.
i made four backless shimmies out of it
Scarlett and Mammy:
mammy r u up?
What is it, Scarlett
do we have any of that chocolate stuff left, with the swirls on it?
I don’t know, Scarlett
can you check
Honey, I’ll get it for you just as soon as the doctor lets me get out of bed
He says the typhoid is awfully bad this spring
what even is typhoid
I’ve got a little touch of it is all
but I’ll be fine, don’t you worry
haha omg ur gonna get so thin
my waist is like nineteen inches already im a whale
listen to me talking about that chocolate stuff
don’t let me have any!!!
ok no but seriously bring me like one jar
just one though
Are you a fan of Gone With The Wind? GREAT! Let’s talk. Is Scarlett the hero or is Melanie? Do you think this is how Scarlett would act if she lived in the 21st century? Who else would you like to see Scarlett text?
