I've had loads stored up in my head lately. Things unrelated to studying and work.
Now that the weather is not cooperating (I had planned to do a decent job at cutting the grass tonight, but the rain has prevented me from doing so) I'm sitting inside.
AND I CAN'T THINK OF A DAMN THING TO SAY!
So, I suppose it is time for a story I've had up my sleeve since last November.
The scene: a very, very crowded country bar, close to last call. The crowd is pretty mixed, but leans to the young side.
The main character: a tall blond in a cocktail dress, looking pretty fine, sitting beside the dance floor, all by herself, because she can't find people in a crowd. She's finishing her beer and going home, if no one finds her (incidentally, the people she's with (colleagues, not friends) don't know that she easily gets lost).
A young man in a cowboy hat plunks himself down next to her: "Hey! Wanna make out?"
The tall blond: "No!"
The young man: "Why not? I'm just being honest." (whines)
The tall blond: "Because I'm old enough to be your mother!"
The young man: "Well, it's your loss." (walks off in a huff)
The tall blond is rescued by one of her colleagues. And realizes, sadly, that she is indeed old enough to be the young man's mother.
Just barely, though. For clarity.
