Flash in the Pan: Cantina

Neither Alberto nor Maria had ever had these feelings for anyone ever before. It was a night both of them would always remember.
They each had one more shots at the local cantina, gathered up their things and left into the pouring rain and wind.
His eyes searched the dirt road for a cab. He saw one, waved his hand as he whistled to get its attention. The cab stopped; he got in and asked her to join him.
She replied, “I don’t want to sit with you in that cab any more than I did in that cantina!”

    The poor dude 😦
    Hey you inspired me
    with this one, I read
    it late last night and
    decided to add this
    comment after trying
    a Binky with rocket
    drawing. Your Mexican
    dude prompted me to
    add Binky with my
    Chocolate FTP soooo
    thank you very much
    for that wickedly fine
    inspiration 🙂 🙂

    Your FTP is excellent,
    maybe his luck will change
    at the next cantina? 😦

    Andro xxxx

    • That’s great, Andro. Nice to know I inspired you…you do that for me from time to time too. 🙂
      His luck might change next time around.

  12. Sooo, I guess the feelings were not returned. Poor guy is right. Another funny one.

  13. You are really good with this flash fiction, Deb. Is it okay if I’m a wee bit jealous of all your talent?

    • Thank you, Sheri!
      You don’t have to be jealous, because I know you can do this too. I bet you could write some excellent flashes! 🙂

  14. Ah, well. Better luck next time little dude!

  15. Hahaha… oh, no! And I thought it seemed to be going so well, too!

  16. LOL! and there most of us probably assumed that it was passion of another kind 😉
