She look better now?
You had a few drinks. Does she look better now?
I suppose… maybe a touch?
So, she might be your type?
Maybe? But listen, I’m not really in the…
Oh yeah you are. They ALL are.
“In tha market.”
Honestly, I’m really quite…
Happy? Yeah, they all think that too. But that’s only cuz you haven’t met “The One” yet.
I really don’t think that I need…
Oh yeah, you do. You ALL do.
Say… what’s your game anyway? Are you some sort of devil or something?
Devil? I’m no devil chump. I’m freakin’ Cupid.
Combining the cocktail with the woman seen “through it,” I decided to have just a bit of fun with this week’s Friday Fictioneer prompt, in honor of what is possibly the most non-sensical holiday we have as a species. I hope you enjoyed!
I *loved* this.
and Cupid’s a serious pain in the ass sometimes. ;)
HAPPY Valentine’s Day darlin.
Happy V Day to you as well, beautiful.
you gave me a warm fuzzy my friend.
(and you’re right, Cupid is always a PITA ;) )
Lovely! That cupid is kind of pushy!
Much more of a used car sales approach than the soft sell, right?
Cupid’s got a hard job!!! Fun story, and enjoyed the video, too. Perfect for this Valentine’s week!
A diminishing audience, would you say? Thank you =)
bwaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha ya caint sell me shit (oh sh*t I have been being such a schmuck…now, can i just slink away or do I have to mention it aloud –while not knowing yet how to correct it?)
ha it’s even funnerer after watching the video
I’m so glad that you enjoyed them both. After writing, I remembered the song, and was thrilled to see that the video played along so nicely!
PS: You swores, you did, you did!
I know. I noticed that I had not screened out a letter just before I was very pleased with myself for at least screening out a letter for you…giggles How to be me and to still honor others seems to be the extreme challenge of late. It’s a wee bit better today. I didn’t even have to practice impulse control–uhm yet…
Oh dear, please do not EVER be anyone other than you. I wouldn’t know what to do with you, if you did. I like you exactly like you is, swears and all =)
ooo and HAPPY VALENTINEY HINEY DAY!!!
Hmmm “the one”…as oppose to all the others that are not? To make a deliberate decision, isn’t that asking a lot in February? I’m just saying…Love your post AND….
…Happy Valentine’s Day T-Bone!
And Happy V Day to you as well, my dear Lotta!
Ha! :-D I liked it. The modern cupid ever at your service. Well-penned.
I think we’re better off without her services – thanks =)
Hahah!! I Really liked that, good fun! :D
Thanks so much =)
Funny story. Never know where you’re going to find that Cupid. I enjoyed the video.
I’m glad you enjoyed, and I’m glad you enjoyed!
You should get a t-shirt with a drunk looking cherub on it with the inscription “I’m Freaking Cupid!” on it. You get that one for free. Go make a million bucks.
Hahaha! I would, but knowing Cupid, she’d sue my ass!
I think that cupid might have forgot his bow…
Probably would’ve just beat the poor guy with it anyway… =)
This really cute.
I’m all about the really cute =)
An enjoyable glimpse into Cupid’s life. Nice one.
Thank you dear =)
Cupid can be a cocky little butthead.
Indeed Tara, indeed!
Cupid’s arrows seem to be losing their magic in these modern times-even he has to do some hard selling,eh?This was an entertaining read :-)
Truth be told, I’m none to sure that Cupid was ever too keen on quality, and much more focused on quantity =)
Ha!Ha!Long back I had done a story on Cupid’s woes;-)
Cupid, encouraging someone to be an alcoholic womaniser. Cool! That’s a great conversation, it also sounds like one you could have with yourself.
It might have been one many of us have had with ourselves – regardless of with whom we argued, how we wished that we had fought back just a little harder, right?
Cupid poring the drinks. Lovely thought. Win-win!
Turns out there was something was in the Kool Aid all along, right?
I’m glad cupid came to play. By the final third of the dialogue, I was becoming curious as to the identity of the first speaker. The reveal did not disappoint. (I wonder though, does this cupid have a bifurcated tail?
I’m all about the not disappointing… thank you!
nice. loved the conversation. really original take on Cupid and a good story for Valentine’s day.
Thank you K.Z., and for my part, I love the new profile pic – gorgeous!
Funny! Looks like Cupid’s in a rush to get things done. After all, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Lots of arrows to unload into hearts…
Gets paid based upon volume, does she? =)
I could work with this cupid.
Seems much closer to the real deal, yes?
Yes! Although I could also see cupid getting bored and creating wicked pairings so he could watch the drama unfold.
Oh, I think I’ve been in on one or two of those pairings… =)
I’m pretty sure he’s messed with me, too. :)
Freakin’ indeed =)
I agree Honie!
Nothing subtle about this cupid. We ALL get better looking after a few shots of booze.
Well, most of us, at any rate… =)
Cupid does sound a little demonish… what a dark succulent twist for V-day!
You’ve always known it to be true though dear, right? =)
Haha yes I always suspected he was in cahoots with dark forces!
Cupid/ devil, yea, I get that.
ha ha haa…and so the truth comes out. Any due who wears a diaper by CHOICE is up to no good :)
Always on the job, that one.
