Chrissy was excited when her doorbell rang and she would finally get to meet the guy she connected with on Tinder. “Hi Chrissy, I’m Reggie,” he said, holding out his hand for her to shake.
After she returned the handshake, she said, “It’s so nice to finally meet you. I really feel we had a connection.”
“Look at you, you’re a feast for the eyes,” Reggie said, stepping back to admire his date after Chrissy let him in.
“Why thank you, Reggie,” Chrissy said, blushing slightly. “Do you like my outfit?”
“I do,” he said. “You look quite fetching.”
“This is just some old thing I pulled out of my closet, Chrissy explained. I was afraid it might be kind of unalluring, but since we’re just going to a movie, I thought it would do.”
“Well, I think it’s a very attractive outfit,” Reggie said.
“You know, some of my friends criticize me for where I shop for my clothes,” Chrissy said, “but it’s truly amazing what you can get at the Salvation Army store for such a paltry sum,” Chrissy said.
“Wait, you buy your clothes from the Salvation Army?”
“Yes, also from Goodwill,” Chrissy said. “You’d be amazed by the bargains you can get there.”
Reggie stepped back, looked at his watch, and said. “Oh my, will you look at the time? I totally forgot that I have a thing this afternoon.” Then he abruptly turned around and ran out of her house.
Written for Teresa’s Opposites Attract prompt, where the words today are attractive and unalluring. Also for these daily prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (feast), Your Daily Word Prompt (fetching), Ragtag Daily Prompt (closet), and Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (paltry).
P.S. I have actually purchased some items of clothing at Goodwill and Salvation Army stores, so this post should not be considered as a slam on either.
