OLWG #204- Swipe Right

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. Feel free to seize the prompts, twist them, form them, play with them as you will. All comers are welcome. The words below are just practice for me. I had a lot of fun writing them and, practice makes perfect.

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

I had immediately swiped right when I saw what Marion had posted on the dating app. There were three photos, and she looked like the same woman in each of them. The photographs used were all of her; she was not surrounded by BFF’s. She appeared to be, maybe fifty years old. She was fit and quite attractive, her smile was captivating, and her eyes were large and deep. It was hard to tell on his phone, but it looked like there were copper coloured flakes in the green of her irises. Long thick red hair just beginning to grey and a spray of tan coloured freckles across her nose and cheeks.

She liked animals, Mexican and French cuisine, and motorcycles (she claimed to own a matte black Sportster 48, which she rode regularly).

There was none of that shit about long romantic walks, in the rain, on the beach. No puppies had received mention in the profile. No talk of devoted cats or teddy bears either. She claimed to prefer strong, darkly roasted, fully caffeinated coffee. She said that she was never averse to the occasional shot or two of good tequila, or a couple of fingers worth of single malt, neat, in an old fashioned glass. And, that nothing beat a good steak or the atmosphere of a fine steak house.

Surprisingly, she swiped right, too. We arranged to meet at Musso and Frank, in Hollywood. She did not show up on her bike, but when she walked into the room wearing her little black dress, the noise level in the room decreased by at least 3 dB. I recognized her from her online photos. I stood, waved to her and made my way across the bar to greet her. I felt like we were old friends who were getting ready to take our friendship to the next level. She gave me a quick hug and a peck on the cheek.

During the meal, I learned some things about her that had not been in her profile. She took photographs and videos of all her food (before and after pics), posting them immediately on Social Media.


Send the steak back to get the grill marks enhanced, providing better contrast.

Sop up careless splashes of dressing on the salad plate allows for a better composition.

Posting her food porn immediately on Instagram or TicTok puts her mind at ease.

Pics of everything she ate.

Everything she drank.

This week’s prompts are:

  1. greater metropolitan
  2. field mouse
  3. rains flood the dirty streets

You can start writing whenever you want, just write, get the words down – and have fun!

  1. I’m not sure I’d be comfortable posting after photos of what I ate. Or even sending back food for enhanced grill marks. Chefs can be upset by that. Eek. I hope he can get out of that relationship…


    OK I admit it I was playing catch up. I couldn’t fit everything in, but I did cram 5 prompts (or more if you want to get technical) into:
    Unsteady Homesteaders?
