Here's the 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!
In last week's excerpt, Syd took off in search of Joe, the escape artist, and found a parking ticket tacked to the windshield of her car instead. We'll continue from there....
“No, no, no, no!” she cried as she dashed toward her car, barely paying any heed to the oncoming traffic.
The officer looked up in alarm, taking a large step back from the vehicle and the crazy lady approaching it.
“Please, officer. Don’t give me a ticket, not today,” she panted, pressing a hand to her chest.
“When’s a better time for you?” he asked with a smirk.
Great, a comedian. “How about never?” She lunged for the ticket from the safety of the sidewalk and her knees almost buckled at the amount owing. “Thirty-five dollars?!”
He held his hands up in defense.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
Any of you ever gotten a parking ticket before? Thirty-five bucks is actually cheap compared to some of the fines I've had to pay. lol. I even got one at the end of a date I'd been on too. The date was pretty good, but certainly not fifty-dollars-worth-good. So much for that "free drink." :D Wishing all of you a very happy, healthy, parking-ticket-free week ahead!
