I Liked It

“I want the curvaceous blonde at the end of the bar,” Jason said. “You can have the skinny brunette she’s with.”

“No way, dude,” Mike said. “I want the blonde. You can have the brunette.

Jason pulled out a quarter from his pants pocket. “I’ll flip you for the blonde,” he said.

Minimum two out of three,” Mike said.

“Deal. Call it.” Mike called heads. Jason flipped the coin. It was tails.

“Damn,” Mike said. “Now it’s my turn to flip,” he said, grabbing the quarter from Jason.

“Tails,” Jason said. Miked flipped it and it was heads. Jason gabbed the quarter back from Mike. “Okay, this flip is for all the marbles.”

“That’s kind of a mixed metaphor, but whatever. I call heads on the final flip.”

Heads it was and Mike was thrilled. The two guys got up off their stools and headed over to where the two girls — the blonde and the brunette — were seated.

“Shit,” Jason said.

“Just our luck,” Mike said, and the two of them headed back to the bar seats they had just abandoned.

Meanwhile, Christie and Maryanne started giggling. “That was a great idea you had for the two of us to embrace with a passionate kiss,” Christie said. That definitely curtailed the plans of those two losers who were back there flipping coins over us.”

“Yes, it worked great,” Maryanne said. “We dodged a bullet, for sure.” Then Maryanne licked her lips, looked deep into Christie’s eyes, and said, “And I liked it.”

    Great. Now I’ve got a song I haven’t thought of in years running through my head. Thank you!

    And I’ve been both. Blondes don’t have more fun. Neither do brunettes. However, men like redheads. No matter how insanely not natural it is.

          Sometimes my brain and fingers type. I rarely read other comments because there’s a part of my brain that for some reason thinks they’re somehow private. They’re not that’s why they’re right there, but there’s that bit that says it’s like flipping through someone’s mail to see who sent something. So I comment ans on my way back up I sometimes see… as I did this time and it was all said. I’m not so original 😂

      Redheads have a reputation for being fiery!

        Yes. Most men say that they don’t want that. I’m a natural brunette who is quite honestly a lot to deal with. Men are more patient with my argumentative self when I had red hair. Even people who knew it wasn’t my hair. They just do. And you could go insane and totally not realistic fire-engine red and they STILL love it. I can’t explain it. I just found the weak spot in the linked fence 😂

    My oldest son’s wife went to a Katie Perry concert more than once. She thought it was a fluke that it was so bad and tried again. The last time, she realized Katie can’t sing; she walked out halfway (or sooner) through the concert. Kinda pissed.

    If you want a pallete cleanser, try Ninety-nine Songs (a Bollywood soundtrack) recommended by my son.

    So I guess they got the last laugh or was that the last kiss?
