Trifecta Week Sixty-Four: Check Please!

Ethan was weighing the option of ordering dessert or coaxing Amelia back to his place. Dinner was decadent so he imagined dessert would be too, but Amelia looked ravishing in that low cut purple blouse. Ethan let his eyes dwell on Amelia’s neckline a little too long.

“You’re not listening to a word I’m saying!”

“Of course I am, dear.”

“Then what did I just say?”

“You’re starting a new diet tomorrow?”

“So you think I need to loose some weight?!”

“No, I’m sorry, I was distracted by your beauty. You don’t need to loose a pound.”

“So, I’m pretty enough for you, but not interesting enough to hold your attention?”

“Ah…no, I did say that, just when you wear a top like that I find it difficult to concentrate on anything else.”

“Now you don’t like what I wear!”

“Check please!” Ethan called to the waiter.

No dessert tonight.

    Oh, I hate it when I can’t lie my way out of a situation. I’ve found it’s better to tell the truth. Clever dialog.

    I could picture the whole scene. It says something for masculine one-track-mindedness that he hadn’t the wit to phrase a compliment properly!

    This is hysterical and very “Dorothy Parker,” a favorite humor writer of mine. Really great dialogue.
