Lillie Mcferrin posts a “five sentence fiction” prompt.
This week it is: CANDIDATE
Going Through the Candidates to Date
Jim, what did you just say that my husband said I was when he decided to call me to take me out on our first date?
I said that he called you a candidate, but I’m sorry Lucy, I shouldn’t have said that, it was a poor choice on my part to have said anything at all about it to you.
Steven, on our first date, you told me my sister gave you my name, not that you found me on a dating website and that I was one of several “candidates” that you were considering going out with.
Lucy, it wasn’t like you think it was, and I didn’t mean to deceive you, and it was your sister who entered you on that dating website without your knowledge and that’s how I met her and she gave me your information and the rest is history, sweetheart.
Yeah Lucy, Steve really didn’t find you on that “Candy Date” site, it was your sister’s picture that he kept looking at saying how hot she… oh, sure, Steve, I’ll be going now, you really don’t have to be rude like that, I can take a hint.
that was not the sweet tooth.
Well, you know what they say,
“candy is dandy
but liquor is quicker…”
that has always been one of my favorite sayings.
in my case, good thing nothing rhymes with futile!
in the meanwhile
it all felt futile
but Bill, what was or is futile?
candy and liquor!
passion was passing
cause I couldn’t stop her laughing
got it,,, ha!
Very clever paring of the word.
Good, original take on the prompt.
That’s what I like – a good word pair.
Great snippets of dialogue! Oh, for other people to keep their mouth shut!
Thank you for your comments.
“Oh, for other people to keep their mouth shut!”
Yup, “minding our own business” is a tough business.
Sort of a foot-in-mouth business.
Thanks for stopping by,
Candy Date sounds a lot like that infamous date on a dare concept… too funny, and one can only guess at the dialog that is soon to follow this exchange! Clever take on the prompt. Loved it!
Thanks. Do you have a site? i tired going to it.
