100-Word Challenge: Nervous

This is my submission to Velvet Verbosity's 100-Word Challenge:  Nervous.

The Blind Date

Blind dates always made her nervous. So much could go wrong, and usually did.

What if he didn’t like her? What if he’d rather hang with his buddies than with her? What if he was a noisy eater? Worse, a sloppy kisser? 

What if he was a real dog?

It was with trepidation that she drove to the park where they would meet for the first time. She needn’t have worried. As she walked toward him, he pulled his leash free and, leaving the other puppies behind, happily loped toward her, silky ears flapping. It was love at first sight!


  1. No worries- he was a Beagle! (They're not dogs, they're HOUNDS! I know, I have one.)

    Nicely done...

  2. Well done, Patti. And a nice twist at the end. For a minute there, I thought you were talking about me (noisy eater, sloppy kisser).

  3. Awwww. I hate when all I can say is "awww", but, you know...awwww.


Thoughts? I would love to hear from you.
