Blind date

Am I boring? I’d like to think I’m enjoyable company, but when he asks me what I like to do for fun, I suddenly draw a blank.

“I like movies.”

“Who’s your favorite director?”

Wow. What is he, a film critic? Who asks that question?

I search my mind for movies I’ve seen recently, then blurt, “Christopher Nolan.”

“Really?”

No, not really. I’ve seen Batman and Inception, but God help me if he asks me to explain Tenet.

“What do you think of his directorial style?”

Dammit! Why didn’t I say Jordan Peele?


Written for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Today’s prompt is “board/bored.” Does “boring” count?

  1. I once had a date with a similar type of guy who asked me for my 10 favorite books. Having already decided never to see him again, I put on a very simpering look and said, “Oh, I can’t recall the titles….but they were all by Danielle Steele!” (Though still to this day I’ve never even opened one.) His face! I still laugh about it, 30 years later!

Let me know I'm not talking to myself.
