Inside the mind of a fantasy writer

Friday Fictioneers: The Regular

I had five minutes and decided to I’ll do a Friday Fictioneers today.

Copyright Jean L. Hays

I come here every day.  Sit in your section.  I always ask for the usual-with a side of smiles.  After finishing a lovely meal, I leave you a ten dollar tip and leave with a rosy start to my day.  But today you chase after me-flagging me down.  “Rick!  Rick!”  I gasp when you  remember my name.  I turn to you and when our eyes meet your face turns red and you can’t help but giggle.  I am such a stud.  Then you hand me something and say, “This sock fell out of pant leg and we don’t accept coupons from Hooters.”

  7. (laughing) If a pretty waitress smiles at me it absolutely ensures a better tip, but I also realize that there’s no fool like an old one. That was a good story.
