Decision Made

It’s Wednesday-Friday! Thanks to Dale Rogerson for posting her FF story or I wouldn’t have remembered the day. And thanks to Rochelle for keeping us on track with wonderful photographs to inspire 100-word stories. This photo was provided by Jeff Arnold. Thanks, Jeff, we all need rainbows these days.

Mom loves me, I know she does, but, even though my name is Angela, she calls me Ditzy. Always. No Kidding.
Tonight, I’m living up to that name in spades. After meeting him once, David said, “Come to my boat. I’ll make you dinner.”
Sure, he’d described his boat, color, size, and told me the number of the mooring slip. Now, with the wind whipping blonde curls in my eyes, I don’t remember.
Red? Blue? Sailboat? Motorboat? Slip 9? 14?
Heck! You only live once. I choose the white yacht at the end of the rainbow.

  2. Ha ha – I hope she made the right decision, or perhaps gave someone else a nice surprise.

    • Thanks, CE (what do those initials stand for?) At first I had her mom calling her Ditzy Blonde. Too much. I think that is what my parents would have liked to call me when I was a teenager. Glad you stopped by.

    Hoping it turns out well for her, but her odds are probably 50/50.

  6. Dear Lish,

    I liked the blonde curls. She comes by Ditzy honestly. Thanks for the chuckles.

  10. I had to thank Dale today also. Her post brought me back to FF. I bet this ditzy girl always lands on her feet. I like her attitude.

    Oh, Ditzy! How disappointed David will be if you don’t show! Lovely gentle humour, Lish – loved it!

    I hope that turns out well for her, but I feel kind of bad for David–unless he’s waiting for her on that yacht πŸ™‚

    I want to know if she found the right guy? Or maybe a new guy? Maybe an even better one! Sweet story that had me smiling

    Let’s hope it’s a lucky choice. Fate sometimes favours the brave. A good story that leaves me wondering if she did or didn’t?

    It’s probably more comfy than David’s dinghy up the other end of the wharf πŸ™‚


  20. Sounds like a plan to me! Really good characterization.
