Happy New Year, even if we are almost a month into it already. In the world of international admissions, this is a very busy time of the year, with students coming in for the spring semester. It’s my job to keep track of them and get them registered and set up with everything they need, while still processing applications that are coming in for next fall. But everyone who is coming for this semester is here, so hopefully things will quiet down a little. I hope to be back as much as I can.
Hey, You Never Know
I wrote my number on the napkin and reached forward to drop it on the tray of the cutie in 12B. She didn’t look back.
Then I got a text. Who’s this?
13C. Winking emoji.
A minute later: Can I have your Haagen-Dazs? The flight attendant had just gone through, distributing the little cartons of heaven.
I hesitated, then slid the frozen treasure onto her tray.
So, what do I get? I audaciously added a kissing emoji.
My husband might kiss you. He’s in 12A.
I sighed and called the attendant. “Another napkin,” I said sadly. “Plain white.”

A bit cruel, but worth it to get the ice cream! That actual Coke napkin is bizarre!

Skilfully written, and a great take on the prompt!

It’s always such a pleasure to see you here. 😀 Love this story. I think 13C took unfair advantage.

The cocky flirt just got smacked down! Humble pie time.

No kiss and ice-cream lost… and I assume there was another 5 hours remaining of the flight.

This was fun to read!
And hey… if you don’t try…
