Does This Mean You're Not Interested?

It's week 108 of Saturday Centus, Jenny Matlock's weekly writing challenge from her blog, off on my tangent.  This week's exercise is to write a story or poem with only 100 words using the photo below as the prompt.  How fun!  I decided to take advantage of the skewed photo to try a little visual perspective narrative this week.  I hope it works.  Here is my effort for this week.  I have entitled it: 

Does This Mean You're Not Interested?


That was uncalled for. Third time this week, too. 

If they didn't want to be hit on, then why are they here in the bar? 

I guess women today aren’t interested in a funny line.

Too bad, I kind of liked “Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?”

No sense of humor.

“You are hotter than my daughter” is another favorite.

It’s just not one of theirs.

Maybe I need to find new pick-up lines because these aren’t working. 

Whatever will stop them from knocking me onto the floor.

“Can someone help me up?”

  1. Tom, those pickup lines are priceless! You must be taking a break, and I'm glad! I love your humor, as you know!! Great take on the prompt!!

  2. That was great! Cracked me up!

  3. Can't understand why a guy wouldn't be getting any action with those lines...


  4. just choking on laughter here! um.... you had me at chloroform????

  5. LOL! If someone actually used those pick up lines that would be so funny. Nice little tale

  7. "Does this rag smell like chloroform?" BAHAHAHA!

  8. Ummm...


    Don't think I can help...

    But I suspect you are just as smooth as glass when you're talking to fair members of the opposite sex...

    When your wife lets you!


    Thanks for the grin today, Mr. Tom.

  9. Try stand up comedies. You will be a huge hit and women will come. :)
