Prose - A Womans Guide to Rejecting a Lounge Lizard (if you will take my advice)

Updated on November 15, 2010

"Hey good lookin' can I buy you a drink?"

A Shakespearean muse cannot alas venture forth upon the fragrance of allure

"WTF? Are you high?"

Love is my intoxication and thus I've become an 18th century daffodil who shall remain chaste and true.

"Dude! You got to hear this whack chick over here. Offer her a drink."

"Hey gorgeous... let me buy you a round! What are you drinking?"

I drink from the wine of discretion and allow its strength to escort me on as a golden fleece protecting virtue, honor and consequence

"HOLY SHIT! Dude! You weren't kidding. This chick is out there!"

"Hey Aphrodite... but why are you out alone with all your friends? Where's Zeus or whoever?

He rides the wings of Pegasus looking for our land of plenty while his heart resides next to mine in a dance of promise and expectation

"Well if it was me I'd be right here because I'd never leave you alone"

The heart cannot be bound by another; it must be allowed to roam free in the wilds testing it's will and only then can one know if love is fleeting or everlasting

"Damn babe, whatever you're on I want a case...."

Search your heart for your true self; it is not an acquisition but a dormant flower waiting for you to shed your false notions of manhood and prideful restraint.

"Ohhh kaaayyy." Good luck with that sweetie... I think my friends are leaving."

The trick is doing it with a straight face....

      Thank you Dink and Lady Wordsmith... I have lots of lines I wished I'd uttered but it seems the pressure of the moment in a bar renders many of us devoid of eloquence... I've stuttered a few dumb lines in my time...

      Thank you Diane... maybe it's a way of adding dignity to an undignified situation... it certainly would weed out the lightweights...

      thank you yaseen... it's just another take on "if you love somebody set them free..." I had a friend who was out on the town last night and I texted the first two lines to her as advice... she said everyone would think she was high and I said "exactly."
