Romantic Comedy

Posted on

What I didn’t tell you about Joe was that, the whole time we were dating, I didn’t know whether or not he’d found this blog.  It came up in an early conversation.  I might have said something like ‘I write a blog’, except that that would have been silly.

Joe looks intrigued.  ‘What’s it called?’

‘Err I can’t really say.’

He laughs.  ‘Well, what’s the tagline?’

‘Errr…’

Is a tagline searchable?  He works in IT: whether or not I think it’s searchable is irrelevant.

‘I guess I can tell you – it’s ‘the highs and lows of a London love life’.’

He senses my discomfort.

‘Don’t worry, if you don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine!’

‘Thanks, best not.’

Memories of Plane Guy.

The conversation takes a different turn.

When Joe II appears on the scene, I will be better prepared.  Hopefully I won’t mention the blog, but in order to avoid sounding like a layabout, I probably will.  And he’ll say…

‘What’s it about?’

‘It’s romantic comedy…’

That way, I sound career-minded.  I sound like the next Richard Curtis.  I sound like a woman with a plan.

And I will have no excuse not to give him the link.
