OLWG #176- In Bernalillo (A Haibun)

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The words below were written for practice. Practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.


When I finally got my courage together I asked Constance out. She agreed; had some conditions though. I wasn’t allowed to pick her up. We had to meet there. Not a dinner date. Not a show. No drinking. It had to be casual so, no dressing up; nothing formal. She wouldn’t agree to a double date. Only the two of us. On a weekend, during the day – Saturday or Sunday, after church. We agreed to meet for lunch, at 12:30, on Camino Del Pueblo. I was there at noon, Constance at more like 12:45. Inside, I ordered the blue corn relleno. She just had desert.

She had to have a cream puff

  2. rising tides lift all boats
  3. I’ll be at the Black Horse Tavern

  1. Talk about once-bitten-twice-shy. At least they meet in person and inside a restaurant. I mean, that’s quite something for the risk averse. Possibly the very definition of “hot date!”

  2. Changes the … tone, maybe? From something matter-of-fact to something funny/sarcastic. Puts a little bit more tension in it. Hmmm…
