Monday's Creative Writing Prompt

Don't ask me why, but I saw this line some place and thought it was so cliche the it would be a hoot to post it out here as a writing prompt and see what we come up with.

Prompt: "Come here often?"

Have fun with it! Be creative, unique, and don't forget to grab your reader as if this were the hook of your story.

"Come here often?"

I sighed. I should've known coming into this place, sitting here at the bar I would've opened myself up to cheesy pick up lines.

I glanced at the man with the golden tongue I wanted to sink into the hard barstool and just disappear. The man was as sleazy as his come-on. Slicked back hair, purple, satiny shirt that was unbuttoned down to his belly button displaying an overabundance of black chest hair and a thick gold chain with a chunky bull's head medallion.

I cringed. He grinned.

If this was the kind of "Mr. Right" I was going to find, I was doomed. But I needed one, and now.
So, I did what I had to do, ignored the amusement of the bartender who was wiping down a beer mug and flashed a smile on Sleazo.

"No, honey. So, what's your sign?"

love the purple satiny shirt!

LOL! That was fun. Is it part of a story or free write? I want to know why she needed a a Mr. Right.

This was an off the cuff bit, not a part of anything, but it could actually be amusing to continue on. :)

Off the cuff is so much fun because the creativity just flows out of you.

I'm keeping all the ones I come up with because you never know when a really great story idea will pop out.
