Weekend Writing Warriors #141!

Hello you crazy people! I'm slightly tipsy right now as I type this at 2:29 in the AM. Wedding receptions at wineries tend to be quite heavy on the alcohol. Word to the wise. Oh, and yes, I've been at a wedding! More on that later. First, here's more from Adventures in Online Dating!

Le blurb: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you! :-D

Aaaand an excerpt, continuing from where we left off. Sydney just asked if Officer Patrick could let her off the hook for paying her parking ticket. 

I’ll buy you a cup of coffee,” she offered with a wink. Oh God, was she flirting with this guy? So he was totally cute, and single...maybe. Well, he didn’t have a ring on his finger, and yes, she’d noticed that. But she wasn’t this girl. She was a good, honest, upright citizen who paid her dues and her fines...not that she was in the practice of receiving fines....
            “How do you know I won’t walk out on you?”
            Patrick laughed again before the punch to the gut could settle. “I’m kidding,” he said. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

So yeah. I've been in the lovely Niagara region for a fabulous wedding weekend with my teachers college peeps! This area is always beautiful and scenic, but add in the fall colours and it's nothing short of spectacular. The food was exquisite, the company even better, and my feet are aching from all the dancing. In short, it was a smashing success, despite the fact that I failed to catch the bouquet. Ah well. I caught the bouquet in the previous three weddings I attended, and no weddings of my own resulted. Maybe it's better luck to NOT catch it. Speaking of catching things, since I'll be driving most of the day, I'll catch up with all of you later this week! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead! :)

  1. Parking attendants in the UK get horribly bad press. But then they rarely look like Officer Patrick! Enjoyed the excerpt.

  2. Panting for Patrick Sir. Clever story written so well.
    Better to catch the guy than the bouquet.

  3. Seems he's quite quick-witted. Like him already! And maybe he likes forward, mostly-law-abiding women. :-)

    Sounds like a fun wedding in a beautiful area!

  4. Enjoyed the snippet, the wedding sounds like it was major fun!

  5. I liked that he's got a good sense of humor. Great, fun snippet! :)

  6. Well, he's flirting back. That's a good sign. Maybe she'll get out of this ticket after all!

  7. This lady is looking for trouble. Hope she finds it (of the good kind, of course).

  8. Haaaaa! He's the one! All the guys she met online, and she meets the counter in the flesh. Great snippet, Evelyn!
