“You didn’t know? You supposed to take the money, then have sex with him.”
“Yeah w-well, I, I asked him. After.”
“And so — wait a minute — he said he’d give you half and then you’d have to give him a notarized I.O.U.? Girrrrl…”
“Noooo, he did not say he needed the I.O.U. to be notarized – just the plain I.O.U. Would you leave me alone about this. I messed up. I know this. I guess you should know all about the standards. This was your career at one time, before you became, legitimate.”
“Yes, bitch, true. At least could he fuck?”
I didn’t want to talk about it anymore. Too embarrassing.
Hahahahahahahaha!!! Gurl, you crazy!!!!!!! Tears
I knew you’d like this one! Ha!
Great dialogue, Sandee!!
Thanks BF! I was hoping this worked…
*snorting my coffee which then spews out of my nose and onto my bacteria-covered keyboard…
Hehehehe! I’m glad you laughed — I always say, glad I’m not the only one laughing at my stuff! I sure cracked me up on this one…
wow…that might be a classic line in a book.
Key words Richardo — I’m thinking of using this as an opening for a longer short story.
This kinda reminds me of a movie I just watched called Women in Trouble… only better 🙂
Thanks THAM! This was my attempt at flash fiction I guess.
Sandee’s like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. And that’s a good thing!
Thanks Carrie — love it — ‘like a box of chocolates’! And wouldn’t you know this was totally an impulse post 🙂
I’m already worried about the novice.
Ahahahaha!! She needs to read that “manual.”
Whatever the rest of the story is, I want to read it!
I think expanding this story will be a writing project for me in the next couple of weeks before I go back to work. Thanks MFE!
I loved it. But I think you just made an argument in support of pimps. 😉
Oh good Lord, that’s hilarious! It’s true, even if they do take 70% of the profits.
I’m not familiar with the typical arrangement, but I do know that Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton only took 10%.
Looking forward to reading more x
Great writing – really funny 🙂
LOL poor girl!
I know right?!
My favourite sentence is, “Yes, bitch, true.”
Ah, mine too! A subtle way to show someone’s character.
I love stories about whores. I wrote one myself called A Whore Named Pumpkin. probably one of the best I ever wrote…
you’re characters are reality painted…
I like the assortment and filling in Sandee’s box of chocolates!
While reading The Mean-Spirited Tales, I often wondered, where the heck’s she getting this crazy stuff from? riding the metro? friends? pure fiction? It doesn’t matter. You do it so well, never fail to make me laugh. I find composing and writing a dialog very difficult. Every time I try, it ends up nowhere, like the daily dialogs I keep with myself 😀 I believe people who are capable of it, has a proper mind.
Thank you Anette! I really appreciate that. And the kind words about my writing. I think you write really well in fact. The words that you chose to go along with your photography are so fitting and organic. Maybe you’re just choosing to focus most of your energy on the visual aspect of creation. Writing is hard work. Over the years you see how important it is to stick with your project and not get disenchanted. I have to trust that over time, after sculpting it, the writing will take shape. Even still it might be a piece of crap — hahaha!
I ought to write less, and shoot more. Stick to my project as you put it. That’s well put. I like it. Now I’ll go shooting, and try to skip the crap 🙂
