Thank you to Rochelle for Friday Fictioneers!

I decided to go a bit upbeat today. We’ll see how that goes! πŸ™‚

The Redhead and the Writer

I’ve lost my mind. It’s the only answer. Maybe he’s not even here. Maybe he’s laughing and drinking a pint in a pub. Maybe I’m an idiot.

I’m an idiot.

I should have picked somewhere else to meet, somewhere romantic like in a Cary Grant film. Instead I picked a crowded, safe museum.

β€œHave you seen a redhead who likes David Bowie and cheese fries?”

β€œThat’s a weird combination.”

β€œI thought so, but she reads Swedish writers.”

β€œYou wouldn’t be a Swedish writer by chance?”

β€œIn fact, I am.”

His blue eyes melt me. Maybe I’m not an idiot. Yet.

  1. I cannot think of a more romantic place to meet than a museum. You can learn a lot about someone by their comments on the art you love. I once took someone to see a Picasso exhibit at a local museum, and when he asked aloud if Picasso was on drugs, I knew the romance was gone. Wonderful post.

    • I think the circumstances certainly can lead you to know whether there is any compatibility or not! Especially if you love Picasso. (Sounds like a not-perfect date for a story.) πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading!
