A Blind Date Confession

J. A. Allen hosts the Sunday Scribble Challenge and this week the topic for a 2-paragraph story is A Blind Date Confession.

Here is my entry:

Sharon noticed the tall bearded man walk into the lobby of the restaurant, stop and slowly glance around the dining area. He fit the description on his dating site and Sharon raised her hand to catch his attention. Joe noticed the movement out of the corner of his eye, smiled and headed in her direction. Halfway there he caught the leg of a chair with the toe of his shoe and stumbled towards her table. “First time with the new foot?” Sharon quipped.

Joe pulled up the leg of his pants to reveal an artificial leg. “As a matter of fact, it is.”

    Ok, here’s a very short blind date story. I met my wife on a blind date on New Year’s Eve as 1971 turned in 1972. Lynn has taken an oath, she will never go another blind date. (A very short story, but a pretty long date.)

      A good oath for a married woman. Hah! Seriously tho, 1972 was a good year.

    Oooh! He may have stubbed an artificial toe, but she really put her foot in her mouth. You packed a lot in a paragraph and a sentence. Skillful scribble!

      Thanks, Al. Why don’t you give it a try on her site?

        I need to stay focused, which is always a challenge for me, on writing for classes. But I enjoy reading what you guys post along with the pics.
