Have decided to join in with Write on Wednesdays... This week's challenge was to turn on the radio and use the first line of lyrics that you hear as the prompt, and then write for 5 minutes. Capital FM didn't provide me with the most emotive of songs but I suppose for today Girls Aloud will have to do...
''Everything he does, he does better than anyone,'' she assures me.
''What does that even mean?'', I reply dubiously.
I cannot tell you how many blind dates I have been been on in the last six months. Too many to count, and I would bore you if I attempted to list them. Let's just say the candidates that I have been to dinner with and attempted to converse with haven't exactly been ideal.
This is the trouble with being the only single woman in your group of friends. You end up being set up with your friends' plumbers, doctors, husbands' golf buddies and so on, all of whom are supposedly 'perfect for you'. Unfortunately this has not been the case with any of the Roberts, Johns or Daves (no Toms, Dicks or Harrys here I'm afraid) that I have batted my eyelashes at. I will be shocked if this latest one that my colleague Rachel is attempting to force upon me, will be any different.
Despite this, in my current single state beggars are not allowed to be choosers, so I will of course be attending the dinner with the infamous Benjamin. I will sit there in a sexy dress attempting to remember what Rachel told me his interests were and pretending that I share the same passions in order to formulate the perfect relationship that I have in mind.
Now...what did she say he liked to do on weekends? ...Walking? Wrestling?...Fairly different past times but I can't remember which it was....will have to brush up on both head locks and hiking just to be safe.
This was all I could manage in the 5 minutes - it went far too quickly! Looking forward to next week's challenge. Would appreciate any comments!
