Who said that? :snooty:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Amazingly, here's the first non-Pooh entry already!! :shock:
And it's darn good!! :dance:

If the writer wants to supply me with a title, I'll add it. :dance: (edit: Just added a title - hope it's OK)

2 Internet Dating

I was late. He minded. We sat at our table.

God, I hate online dating. You could get a bronzed god or a pale skinny weirdo. Unlucky this time - fascinating eyes though.

“You’re not going to order any garlic, are you?” he asked.
“It’s our first date, I’m only having garlic if you are too!” I tittered flirtingly.
He stared at his cutlery. “Is this real silver?”
“I don’t know, it’s a posh restaurant, so probably.”
We ordered steak, mine medium, his rare. I had some wine.
He walked me home.
Can’t remember anything after that.

First dates suck.

This thread is running simutaneously in the non Discworld books section. :lol:
I never posted it there. :snooty:

I've been back for a minute and already broken the forum. :oops:

Typical though! Image
The entry in BD is a link only - one of the mods must have moved it to the Non-Disc forum for a better 'fit' :character-beavisbutthead:

4 Reminisc(r)ing

I had a ring, once.



I’m not one for jewellery in general but this was an heirloom.

It didn’t have any gems in it or anything. It was just a plain, simple golden ring. Yet, it was… precious to me.




I carried it around with me everywhere I went.

I lost it somewhere. Long ago, far away from here.

I told the insurance company I was robbed. Bloodied myself up a bit to make it look convincing. That’s how I paid for the cruise that got me here.


You want another banananana daiquiri? No? Fine.

What.

And I thought it was bad enough when I had a flick through iDrakula yesterday... :?
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
