The Odd Couple: Friday Fictioneers – 4th September, 2019.

They called themselves the odd couple. Yet, ignoring all the warning signs, Katherine fell madly in love with Pete, a self-confessed slob, while she was Queensland’s Lacquer Queen not a hair out of place.

It wasn’t just that his tie was crooked. None of his books were straight either. Some were tipsy and leaning over ever so slightly, while others were drop dead drunk.

In a jiffy, she’d automatically straightened the books while he was cooking dinner, but didn’t know what to do with his feral pot plant. So, she threw it out. Unbothered, Pete just thought he’d got lucky.

Cupid’s Last Stand…Friday Fictioneers.

Cupid was watching his latest targets with great anticipation. Being the Roman God of love, he didn’t need a computer. He instinctively knew Matt and Sophie were perfectly suited.

However, despite his match-making prowess, the humans kept shooting themselves in both feet, screwing up their chances of love. Indeed, Matt who was the personification of Superman without a hint of Clark Kent, reeked of garlic breath. Too paranoid to wear her glasses, Sophie had almost walked past him blind as a bat.

“That’s it!” Cupid fumed throwing down his bow and arrow. “I quit! You humans are on your own.”

It’s been years since I’ve been on the dating scene. However, I’ve been watching The Batchelor tonight where I suspect Cupid’s been in overdrive. Bows and arrows shooting all over the place. At least, the was it seems.

Best wishes,

Two Doggies in Love.

I don’t know who made the first move but here we have Max and Lady proving that love knows no distance and having a bit of an online chat. After all, Max lives all the way over in Hawaii, while Lady is a very long plane ride away in Australia.

As much as I love Max, his online shenanigans have made headlines of late:

Lady tells me that Max is a “professor and a gentleman” and that she has styled herself as “Lady of Palm Beach”, even though that’s only where she goes for holidays and in real life, she’s actually more of a “ruff ruff” than a Lady.

Like so many in the online dating scene, Lady was also caught using a bit of hyperbole. Taking a leaf out of Odie’s book (Garfield), I even caught Lady telling Max that she’s read War & Peace.That’s right. Read it. That wasn’t fell asleep against it and used it as a pillow or chewed it up and devoured the first hundred pages. She wrote that she’d actually read and finished War & Peace.

Lying hound!

This is a dog who can’t even sit on command and stares doe-like with those big brown eyes whenever she has to try something new.

Well, I’m not quite sure what to make of this new online romance but I will be more careful about leaving my computer on and unattended when I duck out. I don’t know how much mischief two dogs can get up to online but I’m not about to find out either.

Besides, for all I know, that Max could really be the Old English Sheepdog from round the corner. You know what they say about online dating, you never can be too careful!!
