Dude Three and Movie Trivia for Birgit


   May this find you well and in hopeful spirits, my Dear Sillies.
  
   Back onto Dude Three (no, not like that. Not yet anyway) - We sat side by side, eating party munchies and listening to lively, live music at a friend’s gathering. There was a tension between us, a good one. I could sense Dude’s nervousness. And when I tripped over nothing onto concrete, as we walked to thank the party host, I sensed my own tension. Then again, that maneuver wasn’t atypical. Just more embarrassing than usual - first date and all.
   “At least you fell gracefully,” Three said, grabbing the baking dish I’d clung onto.
   Oy vey. “Nah, not at all graceful, but thanks for saying that.”

   I hugged Brandi, the hostess. “New boyfriend?” she whispered.
   “First date,” I told her, “I like him.”
   “Maybe he'll be story-worthy.”
   I nodded, craving good . . . material.
----------------------------------))))((((
    At my place, we sat on my couch and talked about what we'd agreed was a "great" date. Dude shared more about his family.
   When he mentioned his mother’s death years earlier, I found my hand in his.
   A few heated seconds later, I found his lips on mine. Sparks were ignited. An electricity between us mixed with passion, thoughtfulness, sensitivity, and -well- it was 2am before we knew it.
   Naturally, he spent the night, in my living room. Alone. “I’m not putting out,” he'd informed. “It’s too soon.”
    “I agree, too soon. Besides, I’m leaving for Greece on Wednesday.* No 'putting out' before I leave.”
 -----------------------------------(((()))))
   A second date, a few days before my trip, proved even more fun and firework-y.
   Dude Three cooked a stir-fry dinner for us. Then we had some “dessert” on my couch. But not the full extent of dessert. I’m not that kind of girl, not yet anyway.

   One of my closest, most loyal blog friends, Anthony J. Langford, recently published Pseudo Stars. Everything he creates -- be it poetry, prose, or film -- is a class act. Plus, he's Australian. They're great peeps. Congratulations on the book release (and on being an Aussie), Anthony!  

    And now, a Greek scene, in honor of Birgit. Birgit's sassy wit never fails to make me laugh hysterically. And her movie trivia is fabulously fun. 
   My question for you, Birgit and everyone: What movie is this setting from? I took the photo on the Greek isle of Crete.  Let's see who guesses correctly first.

  1. I am still suspicious about Dude Three, but will wait (since you give me no choice).
    Congratulations to Anthony.
    And colour me clueless on the movie (unless we are talking Zorba the Greek.

    1. Ha! WINNER, WINNER, falafel dinner! EC wins again. You're right. I figured I wouldn't have to give more clues, but I didn't think it'd be solved on the first guess. That's a scene from Zorba. I took the photo through a window sill - building was nothing to look at, til our tour guide pointed out the semi-famous room. =)

  2. Dang, took Dude 3 to a friend's gathering (so he's already on your territory, being judged by your friends) then he insists on "not putting out?" Either this is one good, virtuous dude, or something is off. Either way, have fun. These early dates with all the nervous electricity are fun. Have fun in Greece!

    1. Thank you, Pickleope.
      I did have fun, and I returned. (I'm not able to write these stories in real time - that's too hard, excuse the pun.)

      Thanks, Alex.

    1. There's always another shoe dropping, isn't there? Even when there aren't more feet. Hm. But maybe not.

    1. Yes! It's Zorba, and EC guessed it immediately. She was the first to class today (and usually). It's tough to beat that lady.
      I had a nice Thanksgiving. Thank you, Joanne.

  8. I'm that kind of a girl. Send him my way and he'll be putting out (the garbage cans) before he knows it.

    Love,

      Love.

  9. I feel a little tension about this dude after this post. Undecided yet if it's a good type of tension. Oh, the suspense...

    1. I'll simply say that I enjoyed the tension.
      Cheers, Martha.

  10. A little tension is a good thing. A release of that tension is even better. So far Dude Three is playing his hand well. Will be still be there after Greece? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

  11. Sorry for my late post but had fr8e da for the weekend. First off, movie trivia? I am guessing but is this from Shirley Valentine? That is my guess and I hope I am right:) as for this guy...sounds good but sexual fun is always quite good😋

    1. Oh, that was a good guess, Birgit. I need to see that movie, I'm told. It's supposed to be great.
      I'm confused by what you had for the weekend (fr8e da?), but if it's anything like sexual fun - I'm thrilled for you.

    2. See Shirley Valentine--you will LOVE it!!

    3. I meant "friends over"! That's what happens when I write on my tablet and don't double check

  12. I just read it is Zorba! I am wrong...oh well, nobody’s perfect:)

    1. Some of us, like you and me, are so very close to perfection, however. It's tough, isn't it? Smiles.

  13. MEN actually say "I'm not putting out, it's too soon"???? Well, I've heard it all now.

    1. I know. I was even more endeared - it was cute and wimpy on his part.

  14. I'm impressed that he didn't want to jump into sex right away. Sounds like a good guy!

    1. It was a good (non)move at the time. =)
      Thanks, JoJo.

  15. I'm a little suspicious- what guy is the one to postpone the hokey pokey?

    1. Perhaps a good one, "the one," or a wimpy, scared one? You'll never know until I reveal more. Aren't I annoying?

      Cheers, Elizabeth. Keep a smile and be well.

  16. Fingers crossed this guy is a keeper. Who doesn't like a man who can cook? Yum. No clue on that movie scene. Take care.

    1. That's okay, Sheena-kay. Three people guessed, and they guessed correctly.
      A man who heats things up in the kitchen - yes, a good thing. Smiles.
      Thanks for visiting.

  17. Story worthy?
    How long before we find out he's "sponge" worthy? ;-)
    Seinfeld reference, if you didn't know.

    1. Oh yes, I know.
      I'll speed things up around here. It's a little tricky - not that it's little at all. That's what she said.
      Love ya, Al.

  18. Three - Performance anxiety? Or just anxiety?
    Or an extraordinarily stunted weiner haha

    Thank you kindly for the nod. I appreciate that alot. xo
