(Author’s note: So, a lot of stuff happened in the last month that’s caused me to lose focus. Being in a shared house provides responsibilities that one has to take seriously. So now that I’m on a vacation from work, and just resting up, I’m back to getting in the swing of it. So, for the last post of 2021… enjoy!)
Get To You
by Miles H. Rost
A historic hotel in a sea of skyscrapers was not where Mitch wanted to be.
Making the most of a family reunion trip, however, it was better than nothing. It was also free, which helped numb some of the sting.
Mitch walked out to the street. As he reached the curb, the slippery ground gave out from under him.
Within seconds, he was stunned and couldn’t breathe. After a few more seconds, he was staring into the eyes of a passing nurse with the most stunning maize-colored hair.
“Dinner?” he croaked out.
“Breathe first, dinner after,” she replied, smugly.
He sure doesn’t let an opportunity pass by. Fun story!
He was thinking about getting food before ending up on the ground barely breathing. If a young nurse comes to help (and watched the entire thing), it’s not surprising he’d ask her. 😀
Not such an unfortunate accident after all! Nice one.
Considering she was likely watching the whole thing, I think that is precisely the case.
Hilarious last line. Happy New Year!
She’s a nurse. She has to make sure her patient is okay before extracting dinner out of him. 😀
You’re way behind on your commenting when I see Happy New Year 🙂
Yes, I love it when I’m advised, “remember to breathe.” Like I might forget. Well told.
Hey, the reminder sometimes comes in handy. Especially if you’re single! XD
Why was the nurse smug?d. Did she create his opportunity?
She was watching the whole thing unfold, and took advantage. 🙂
