Gooooooooooood morning everyone!
Got more for you this week and even though I’m still giving you samples from my A-Z of Flash Fiction, this one is a bit of an odd piece. We’re on ‘U’ today and the trigger word is ‘ukelele.’
How many of you have seen the advert for match.com? It may be different if you live outside the UK, but for a long while the advert featured a man singing across a train station platform to a girl on the other side. He played a little ukelele and it was just the cutest little piece of advertising I’d ever seen.
If you’ve not seen it before, this is the advert in full:
I remember singing the stupid little song when I woke up in the morning because it was just so thoroughly stuck in my head. It was so stuck there that I wrote this little piece of flash, first person, just to get it out of my system. So… I hope you enjoy these six sentences.
~Gemma espies a not so secret admirer….
“Its the best smile I’ve seen for a while.”
Its too difficult not to look up. So I do.
Across from me – directly across, in fact! – on the opposite platform is a man. He’s plucking lazily on a tiny ukulele and gazing across towards my side. Towards me!
This week, as ever, there is a selection of other authors to sample by visiting the main site. You can do that by clicking on the banner link below. Catch you next time!
