Lyrical Fiction Friday — Netflix and Chill

“Oh I got it,” said Cliff. “That’s from that movie ‘Top Gun’ with Jack Nicholson and Tom Hanks.”

“Not even close, Cliff. It was ‘A Few Good Men,’ and it was Tom Cruise, not Tom Hanks,” Cheryl corrected him. “Your turn.”

“Never ask a question if you don’t already know the answer,” Cliff said.

“Let’s see,” said Cheryl, mocking deep concentration. “That’s from every lawyer movie and courtroom TV drama ever made.”

“Oh, ha ha,” Cliff said sarcastically. “Okay, how about this? Don’t ask a question if you don’t want an honest answer.”

Cheryl started laughing. “That’s what every man tells his wife or girlfriend when she asks him if she looks fat in her jeans.”

“So true,” Cliff said. “And along those lines, don’t look for what you don’t want to find.”

Cheryl was stumped. “Wild guess. Was it from an episode of Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch?”

“I have no clue, but I can’t see Benedict Cumberbatch saying that,” Cliff said.

“Speaking about that yummy Benedict Cumberbatch,” Cheryl said, “how about we Netflix and chill to some Sherlock.”

“I’m down with that,” Cliff said. “I’ll pop some popcorn and grab a couple of beers.”

Written for Lyrical Fiction Friday by Marquessa. The idea is to write a post based on a song lyric, in this case, “Don’t look for what you don’t want to find,” from the song “Back It Up.”
