TWO GIRLS TALKING - a story in exactly 100 words

This story has been simmering since yesterday but that was also my husband's birthday, so cake-making had to take precedence. It does seem that if I don't get my story out on Wednesday I don't receive nearly so many comments, but that's life, I guess.
Thanks to Dale for the photo and to Rochelle for running the entire Friday Fictioneers shebang on her blog  https://rochellewisoff.com/
ps. I do hope this actually IS a baseball pitch - not being American or Canadian I can only surmise!

TWO GIRLS TALKING                                    

‘How’s the big romance going?’
‘All he thinks about is baseball. Our dates consist of holding hands on a hard wooden bench – I’ve had so many splinters my behind looks like a pincushion.’
‘So tell him you want to be taken out for a romantic meal.’
‘Didn’t you see the photo? It was all over Facebook – I nearly died of embarrassment – a table smack bang in the middle of the pitch.’
‘At least he’d made the effort to carry it out there – and getting the pizza delivered can’t have been easy.’
‘Huh! There wasn’t even a candle on the table!’

  1. I don't see that romance lasting much longer! No candle? Tut-tut.

    Here's my story.

    1. He needs some lessons in romance, certainly.

  2. Floodlights don't seem to have the romance of candlelight, Lizy.

    1. They don't - especially as there was a photographer lurking.

  3. I'm sure he thought of it as a compromise

    1. Probably - I wonder if she dumped him?

  4. Aww, I thought he'd put a lot of effort into that little surprise. Poor lad!

    1. He did, Helen, he did - shame he got it so badly wrong!

    1. You appear to sympathise with the young man?

  6. Just love this, typical of some male behaviour 😊

  7. Dear Liz,

    It sounds like a perilous spot for a romantic dinner. She needs to have a talk with her would-be Babe Ruth or find a safer beau. Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    1. Their only chance is compromise, and he needs to think outside the. Baseball field!

  11. Funny story, but they are young and will hopefully figure it out. I'm assuming they're young, otherwise...

    1. They are young. Whether they work it out or move on is in the hands of fate!

  12. Obviously not in the business of giving full marks for originality. :) Good one.

  14. Well, it could be worse I guess. He needs some advice, soon. Good story, Liz. :D --- Suzanne

    Looks like our ball player struck out.
