First Line Friday: August 3rd, 2018

Over to Dylan for details of his fortnightly challenge:

Our line for this week is:
“You embarrassed me this evening.”

‘Why? We won didn’t we?’
‘You did, I didn’t. In fact, I knew nothing about it.’
‘If I’d told you, you would never have come.’
‘If you’d told me, I would at least have been prepared.’
‘Sorry. But it was too good a chance to miss.’
‘It explains all those nights out.’
‘It was one night a week! You said you didn’t mind!’
‘I may have done, had I known the truth. You said you were going to dance classes.’
‘I did! We were getting our routines and steps right. The whole class was behind us!’
‘You didn’t say who your partner was. How do you think I felt when I found out?’
‘I’m sorry. Really. We were just dance partners. Miss Emmy put our names forward for the Jive contest. We won Richard! Doesn’t that count for anything?’
‘It hurts, Leslie. Seeing you in the arms of another man, being tossed, turned and twirled, when it should have been me!’
‘But you don’t dance, let alone jive!’
‘But I used to, before I knew you. That’s how I know Ron. He was my partner in those days in more ways than one.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
