My Typical Date, Grand Finale, a Saturday Centus

Welcome to my Saturday Centus, a fun and unpredictable weekly writing challenge hosted by Jenny Matlock, extraordinaire. This time, we're afforded 150 words for a dialogue-only piece. I've continued My Typical Date post from two weeks back. The prompt is bolded below. I hope you enjoy, join our class if you haven't already, and visit Jenny Matlock's blog here to read the other offerings. Happy Saturday and weekend.

My Typical Date,Grand Finale

“Momma, Momma, may I?”

“What? You’d even consider leaving me? A painful 23 hour labor and this is the thanks I get! Your father, may he rest in peace that bastard, is rolling in his grave right now.”

“Um, Robyn, she’s upset. Why don’t we take her along? She doesn’t have to sleep with us. We can get her a cot. And (whispering) I’ll let you ride shotgun.”

“You’d make me sleep in a cot? I told you that wretched tramp was no good for you! Dear God, what did I do to deserve this?”

“Don’t call her wretched, momma!”

“That’s it! I’ve been patient long enough with your sick and twisted relationship! I’d show you shotgun if I had one! Just watch me wretchedly tramp on out of here!”

“Phew. Mazel Tov! Oh, waiter, waiter. Bring another! We’re celebrating!”

“Momma, are you seriously ordering another martini?”

  7. Wait...is this a girl-girl date here? I'd like to see an opinion from a rabbi before commenting on this one. All things considered Momma was pretty broad-minded.

  8. *snicker* I'd have bopped "momma" on the head with my handbag....making sure it was loaded with bricks, first. Sonny-boy would have gotten it next. :)

  9. Alex, of that I'm guilty. Thanks.

    Tgo, always happy to make you laugh.

    MsA, that's true.

    Laughingwolf, good to see you again. Thank you.

    Viki, I think he's too wimpy. Thanks.

    Anna, glad you enjoyed it.

    Judie, I'm pretty sure they do. I'm not much of a drinker, except when it comes to chocolate chai frost freezes sans booze. =o)

    GB, it's a sequel to the last. It should've been a boy-girl date but momma was always around. Except the most conservative rabbis, they're open-minded regarding sexual orientation - as is the Jewish people, generally.

    Marlene, I like your stategies. I should call you for consultation in such situations.

  16. Hilariously good...and here I thought the first part could not be upstaged. You really aught to come up with a humorous chick lit on dating fiascos. I would save my pennies(cents) right away to buy. :)
