This week’s prompt: to/too/two
I asked if I could come too, but I was told if I came that would make three and three was a crowd when you really only wanted to go with your girlfriend.
The two of them were always together, in the playground, classroom, the weekend and most of all at the movies.
That really narked me as I wanted so much to go and see the new James Bond movie but they said I’d get in the way, make them feel embarrassed I was there with them on my own.
It wasn’t my fault I was always on my own.
Every girl I asked looked at me as if I had the plague or something worse and made an excuse for not being available.
To bad I thought I’m an all right sort of guy.
Mum says so, says not to be discouraged that most of the girls in town cross the street when I walk down it, or run in the opposite direction if they see me in front of them.
The only date I ever had was with Kathy Wheeler to see Star Wars and she sat with her arms folded the entire time staring straight ahead even when there was nothing on the screen.
I tried to engage her in conversation, you know just slight chit chat but she just grunted a few times then said she couldn’t talk as she had a sore throat and was feeling as if she should go home there and then and the movie hadn’t even started and she’d barely begun eating her choc top.
It was discouraging to see her hurry down the aisle looking back to make sure, I am sure, that I wasn’t following her.
But I stayed and watched the movie and left just as the credits came on and the theatre was still dark to make my exit hoping no one would see me leaving alone.
One and one equals two my mum would say, you just need to be patient to find that other one to make you a two.
I pondered this and wondered if Kathy Wheeler was over her sore throat and worth asking again when she was feeling a bit healthier. After all she was one hot looking girl and she owed me a choc top.
