Tale time!

For Sadjes What Do You See picture prompt. .




Seven o’clock she said. I arrived at seven-o-five ‘cos they say it’s cool to be fashionably late. So why isn’t she answering her door?

I picked her up some flowers at the petrol station, they are lovely, well, most of them. 

Her profile says she likes diamonds, belongs to clubs, likes gardening and has a warm heart so I bought her a deck of cards!

I  smartened myself up. I ironed my jeans (the scorch mark on my bum hardly shows), combed my hair and even had a shave. Shame I cut myself but the band-aid does make me look like a tough guy.

I’m a highly desirable fella, she should feel really honoured that I chose her. Okay, she was the only one that said yes but she doesn’t need to know that.

I even agreed to have our date on Sunday even though it’s not at all convenient, I normally play Bingo at the community centre on Sundays…

…sorry, did you say something? 

It’s not Sunday? 

It’s Monday?

    Unfashionably late this time, I’m afraid. Delightful wordplay — and your wilting rose touches my callous heart. 😉
